Stria terminalis

Last revised by Yuranga Weerakkody on 24 Feb 2019

The stria terminalis, also known as the terminal stria, is a fascicle of nerve fibers that runs across the lateral wall of the lateral intra-ventricular surface in a groove formed by the head of the caudate superiorly and the thalamus inferiorly. The stria terminalis overlies the superior thalamostriate vein 1.

It carries fibers from the amygdala to the hypothalamus. It is thought to play a role in the modulation of autonomic, neuroendocrine and behavioral responses 2.
