basal magnocellular nucleus
Acronym: B
The term basal magnocellular nucleus refers to discrete groups of large cells revealed by Nissl stain in the rostral portion of the substantia innominata of the human ( Anthoney-1994; Schiebler-1999 ) and the macaque ( Szabo-1984 ). The primate structure probably has a topological equivalent in the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and the mouse ( Hof-2000 ), which has been variously known as the magnocellular preoptic nucleus, the nucleus of the horizontal limb of the diagonal band, and the magnocellular nucleus of the pallidum ( Swanson-2004 ).

Also known as: basal forebrain nucleus, basal nuclei of Meynert, basal nucleus, basal nucleus of Meynert, magnocellular preoptic nucleus, nucleus basalis of Meynert, Nucleus basalis, Nucleus basalis (Meynert), Nucleus basalis Meynert
