Inputs and outputs

It projects to the postcentral gyrus and receives the solitary tract and trigeminal nerve information from the medial lemniscus. The lateral postcentral gyrus is a prominent structure in the parietal lobe of the human brain and an important landmark. ... The solitary nucleus and tract are structures in the brainstem that carry and receive visceral sensation and taste from the facial (VII), glossopharyngeal (IX), vagus (X) cranial nerves, as well as the cranial part of the accessory nerve (XI). ... The trigeminal nerve is the fifth (V) cranial nerve, and carries sensory information from most of the face, as well as motor supply to the muscles of mastication (the muscles enabling chewing), tensor tympani (in the middle ear), and other muscles in the floor of the mouth, such as the... The medial lemniscus, also known as Reils band or Reils ribbon, is a pathway in the brainstem that carries sensory information from the gracile and cuneate nuclei to the thalamus. ...

Apart from the thalamic reticular nucleus, two transient groups of cells, the perireticular nucleus (located in the internal capsule lateral to the reticular nucleus) and the cells of the cortical subplate, are prominent along the course of axons linking the cortex and thalamus early in development.
Nucleus rotundus projects to zone 4 of dorsal area, nucleus caudalis projects to zones 2-4 of dorsal division of medial area, and nucleus reuniens projects to zones 2-4 of both the ventral division of medial area and the ventral area.
The anterior dorsal ventricular ridge in reptiles is probably homologous to the neostriatum and ventral hyperstriatum in birds and to the endopiriform nucleus in mammals.
