thalamic eminence

Description

Also known as the emminentia thalami. The thalamic eminence is part of the diencephalon and lies ventral to the ventral thalamus and dorsal to the preoptic area. This region gives rise to the ventral entopeduncular nucleus that extends into the telencephalon and straddles the diencephalic/telencephalic border. The ventral entopeduncular nucleus is a major afferent nucleus to the habenulae.

telencephalon

Description
 

Formed from the rostral-most neuromere, the telencephalon in zebrafish consists of the olfactory bulbs, dorsal telencephalon or pallium and the ventral telencephalon or subpallium.   The teleost telencephalon is formed by two solid telencephalic lobes separated by a T-shaped ventricle. This "everted" morphology is in contrast with most other vertebrates where the telencephalon forms by a process of evagination resulting in hollow telencephalic lobes surrounding a central ventricle.
