Neostriatum is the name given to the caudate nucleus and the putamen (the putamen is the outer layer of the lentiform nucleus).


The term is sometimes abbreviated to striatum; however, this should be distinguished from corpus striatum (which is the caudate nucleus in addition to the entirety of the lentiform nucleus).
