Habenular nuclei

The gray matter of the habenula, composed of a small-celled medial habenular nucleus (nucleus habenularis medialis) and a large-celled lateral habenular nucleus (nucleus habenularis lateralis); both nuclei receive fibers from basal forebrain regions (septum, basal nucleus, lateral preoptic nucleus); the lateral habenular nucleus receives an additional projection from the medial segment of the globus pallidus. Both nuclei project by way of the retroflex fasciculus to the interpeduncular nucleus and a medial zone of the midbrain tegmentum.
