    The mediodorsal nucleus of the thalamus (MD) has been implicated in executive functions (such as planning, cognitive control, working memory, and decision-making) because of its significant interconnectivity with the prefrontal cortex (PFC). Yet, whilst the roles of the PFC have been extensively studied, how the MD contributes to these cognitive functions remains relatively by: BOOK REVIEWS: PDF Only. Walker A. E.

The present volume is an excellent discussion of the anatomy and physiology of the thalamus of the macaque. It begins with an historical introduction which, though brief, brings the material well up to date. The second chapter describes Walker's method of study and experimental material including a brief review of the Nissl and Marchi technics.

The thalamus (from Greek θάλαμος, "chamber") is a large mass of gray matter located in the dorsal part of the diencephalon (a division of the forebrain). Nerve fibers project out of the thalamus to the cerebral cortex in all directions, allowing hub-like exchanges of has several functions, such as relaying of sensory signals, including motor signals to the cerebral cortex Artery: Posterior cerebral artery and branches.

In this monograph Walker presents a comprehensive account of the anatomy, connections and function of the primate thalamus. A short historical introduction is followed by a detailed discussion of the gross and the nuclear structure of the thalamus of the macaque monkey, as. The basal ganglia form a major brain system in all species of vertebrates, but in primates (including humans) there are special features that justify a separate consideration.

As in other vertebrates, the primate basal ganglia can be divided into striatal, pallidal, nigral, and subthalamic components. In primates, however, there are two pallidal subdivisions called the external globus pallidus.

The author devotes the third chapter to a description of the gross and nuclear structure of the macaque thalamus. The remainder of the book, four substantial chapters, includes: (a) a description of the afferent connections of the thalamus; (b) a discussion of the relation of.
