I have been trying to learn the anatomy of the brain, and some information on their functions, through an iPad app called 3D Brain. Whilst going through the different parts, I have noticed that one area doesn’t seem to be mentioned.
If you look at the image below, you get the brain stem (colour highlighted and labelled).
Going from the brain stem upwards, I am then trying to identify the structures in medium grey which sit on top of the midbrain.
I have seen that the bulbous areas left and right are the basal ganglia.
What are the rest of the structures? I would like to know what all the mid grey structures are in the first image, but I am especially curious to know what I have drawn around below.
