The midline nuclear group (or midline thalamic nuclei) a region of the thalamus consisting of the following nuclei:

  • paraventricular nucleus of thalamus (nucleus paraventricularis thalami) - not to be confused with paraventricular nucleus of hypothalamus
  • paratenial nucleus (nucleus parataenialis)
  • reuniens nucleus (nucleus reuniens)
  • rhomboidal nucleus (nucleus commissuralis rhomboidalis)
  • subfascicular nucleus (nucleus subfascicularis)
