Thalamic Nuclei >

ventral posterior lateral nucleus (VPL) input from the medial lemniscus and spinothalmic tract to cortex
ventral mediolateral nucleus (VML) input from the trigeminal lemniscus, trigeminothalamic tract, and taste inputs to the somatosensory and taste cortex
lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) inputs from the retina to the primary visual cortex
medial geniculate nucleus (MGN) inputs from the inferior colliculus to the primary auditory cortex
ventral lateral nucleus info from basal ganglia and cerebellum to cortex
ventral anterior nucleus info from basal ganglia and cerebellum to cortex (diffuse to frontal cortex)
mediodorsal nucleus limbic to frontal cortex
pulvinar tectum (visual and other sensory info) to large regions of the parietal, temporal, and occipital association cortex--> involved in behavioral orientation towards relevant stimuli
anterior nucleus limbic to cingulate gyrus
