The table below provides a searchable list of region-to-region (macroscale) collated published connection reports (macroconnections) for the thalamus of the rat. Currently, these data include reports of macroconnections within the thalamus (intrathalamic macroconnections).
Region nomenclature follows an open access atlas for the rat brain (Brain Maps 4.0. Swanson, L. W. 2018). For additional information, including details of region organization within the central nervous system, see the atlas, or on this website the Brain Maps page and Brain Maps 4.0 interactive spreadsheet. The main Connections page on this website includes a table for finding a region name if only the abbreviation is known, or vice versa. Initial table loading may take a short while and is indicated by a blue progress bar.
Search tips: To show only connection reports that were chosen as the best available for use in network analysis (Connection Data Sources at bottom of page) select [yes] from the [Selected Report] category. Multiple filter selections can be applied to refine search results. To clear all filters select [Clear filters] from the [More actions] menu.
Connection data sources for hypothalamus macroconnections
Macroconnection reports provided on this website were collated from the primary literature. The publication below describes network analyses based on selected reports for the thalamus.
