Striatum and neostriatum are considered synonyms in the Terminologia Anatomica but are distinguished from corpus striatum 2. The latter includes the (neo)striatum and pallidum (paleostriatum), the main part of which is the globus pallidus.
The striatum is composed of two parts: dorsal striatum (striatum dorsale) and ventral striatum (striatum ventrale or corpus striatum ventrale) 2,3.
The dorsal striatum is composed of the caudate nucleus, putamen, and caudolenticular grey bridges (pontes grisei transcapsulares).
The ventral striatum is composed of the nucleus accumbens, as well as the olfactory tubercle 3,4.
