terete hypothalamic nucleus
The term terete hypothalamic nucleus refers to a group of cells in the lateral hypothalamic area of the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and the mouse ( Paxinos-2001 ). It may correspond to the lateral tuberal nuclei of the primate based on a staining characteristic ( Saper-1990 ). It is one of four parts of the tuberal nucleus defined on the basis of multiple criteria. Functionally it belongs to the motor lateral hypothalamus, which is part of the subcortical motor system ( Swanson-2004 ).
