Caudate Nucleus

This photo gallery presents the anatomy of caudate nucleus by means of MRI (T1-weighted axial, sagittal and coronal views). The caudate nucleus (CN) plays a vital role in various higher neurological functions. The CN is a paired, C-shaped subcortical structure located deep inside the brain near the thalamus(1). Caudate nuclei contain a large anterior

Anatomy of the Basal Ganglia

• Lentiforme Nucleus = putamen + globus pallidus• Corpus striatum = caudate nucleus + putamen + globus pallidus• Neostriatum = caudate nucleus + putamen.
