Historical Examples of thalamencephalon
The fore-brain consists (fig. 43) of a thalamencephalon (th) and an undivided cerebral rudiment (ch).
To the roof of the thalamencephalon is attached a flattened sack (pn) which is probably the pineal gland.
It arises (fig. 253 pn) as a sack-like diverticulum of the thalamencephalon extending at first both backwards and forwards.
The proximal extremity attached to the roof of the thalamencephalon forms a special section, known as the infra-pineal process.
The floor of the thalamencephalon projects downwards and backwards as the infundibulum.
