Thalamus definition: Paired bodies containing mostly gray substance and forming part of the lateral wall of the third ventricle of the brain. The thalamus represents the major portion of the diencephalon and is commonly divided into cellular aggregates known as nuclear groups.
thalamus definition: paired bodies containing mostly gray substance and forming part of the lateral wall of the third ventricle of the brain; represents the major portion of the diencephalon.
thalamus definition: (THAL-a-muss) An area of the brain that helps process information from the senses and transmit it to other parts of the brain.
THALAMUS definition: An ovoid mass composed predominantly of gray substance and associated laminae of white substance. The thalamus is divided into anterior, medial, and lateral parts. The function of the thalamus is to relay sensory impulses and cerebellar and basal ganglia projections to the cerebral cortex. The thalamus is positioned within the posterior part of the diencephalon forming most of each lateral wall of the third ventricle. (NCI)
