The bony fishes consist of ray-finned fishes and lobe-finned fishes. In ray-finned fishes, the forebrain forms a morphocline from the cladistian bichirs through teleosts regarding the number and increasing complexity of pallial connections. The nuclei of the posterior tubercle parallel this increase in complexity, but the dorsal thalamic nuclei do not. The primary targets of the dorsal thalamic nuclei are the subpallial nuclei, whereas the primary targets of the posterior tubercle are various… Expand
Phylogeny of nucleus medianus of the posterior tubercle in rayfinned fishes.
The brains of ray-finned fishes form a morphocline of increasing complexity, from cladistians through teleosts. This is particularly apparent in the posterior tubercle of the diencephalon. InExpand
Stalking the Everted Telencephalon: Comparisons of Forebrain Organization in Basal Ray-Finned Fishes and Teleosts
Compared to land vertebrates and the other fishes, the basal ray-finned fishes and teleosts have morphologically unusual forebrains. The telencephalic pallium is everted, and its diencephalic inputsExpand

BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM | Functional Morphology of the Brains of Sarcopterygian Fishes: Lungfishes and Latimeria
The brain of lobe-finned fishes, that is,coelacanths and lungfishes, are compared with one another and with the brain of tetrapods, to whom lobe-finned fishes are closely related. The hindbrain andExpand
The Forebrain of Actinopterygians Revisited
The forebrain of actinopterygian fishes differs from that of other vertebrates in that it consists of a pair of solid lobes. Lateral ventricles surrounded by nervous tissue are entirely lacking.Expand

1.04 – The Brains of Teleost Fishes
Teleost fishes, the largest group of craniates exhibit a tremendous diversity of shape and ways of life. Their brains display accordingly a large array of morphologies and functional differences fromExpand
An Evolutionary Interpretation of Teleostean Forebrain Anatomy
During the past few years, our investigations of the forebrain in the zebrafish (a teleost fish) have shown that its molecular anatomy and expression patterns of genes involved in the regulation ofExpand

Current research on the thalamus and related structures in the zebrafish diencephalon identifies an increasing number of both neurological structures and ontogenetic processes as evolutionaryExpand

The Actinopterygii or ray-finned fishes comprise, in addition to the large superorder of teleosts, four other superorders, namely the cladistians, the chondrosteans, the ginglymodes, and theExpand

TLDR
Caveats are raised concerning the above interpretations of DM and DL, which may have evolved independently of the telencephalic zones in tetrapods and may thus represent examples of homoplasy. Expand
Head size constrains forebrain development and evolution in ray‐finned fishes
TLDR
It is proposed that telencephalic eversion evolved because ray‐finned fish embryos are so small that their telencephon cannot evaginate but must, instead, squeeze into the space just dorsal to the developing nasal epithelia and rostral to the eyes—morphogenetic movements that amount to eversion.

The Telencephalon of Actinopterygian Fishes
The class of bony fishes or Osteichthyes is usually subdivided into two subclasses, the Actinopterygii or ray-finned fishes and the Sarcopterygii or lobe-finned fishes. The subclass last mentioned,Expand
The Telencephalon of Sarcopterygian Fishes
TLDR
The most important distinguishing feature of these fishes is the division of the neurocranium into two parts, an anterior, ethmo-sphenoid portion and a posterior, otico-occipital portion with an intracranial joint between them. Expand
Evolution of the Nervous System in Fishes
TLDR
From this analysis, a Bauplan or morphotype of the vertebrate brain emerges which exhibits many common ancestral neural traits (e.g., cranial nerves, brain subdivisions), suggesting a largely conservative neural organization throughout the vertebrates neuraxis on which many specializations may be detected.

A SURVEY OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE FOREBRAIN IN HIGHER BONY FISHES (OSTEICHTHYES)
TLDR
A brief survey of the overall morphology and histological structure of the telencephalon in higher bony fishes, or Osteichthyes, to shed some light on the general forebrain organization on the basis of only a few species. Expand
Visual Thalamotelencephalic Pathways in the Sturgeon Acipenser, a Non-Teleost Actinopterygian Fish
TLDR
The thalamotelencephalic projections of a sturgeon, a non-teleost ray-finned fish, demonstrate that thalamic neurons in both retinal and tectal pathways project directly to the telencephalon, supporting the view that two visual pathways are a primitive feature of vertebrate brain organization.

TLDR
A resolution to the conflicting hypotheses of pallial relationships across ray-finned fishes and in comparison with other craniate radiations is presented here, based on a re-examination of hodological and histochemical data mandated by this sulcal anatomy. Expand

TLDR
The major focus of this Review is to discuss related data in teleosts, mostly by explicitly comparing mouse and zebrafish forebrains. Expand
Possible multiple evolution of indirect telencephalo-cerebellar pathways in teleosts: studies in Carassius auratus and Pantodon buchholzi
TLDR
This work investigated telencephalic connections in two nonelectrosensory teleosts, the goldfish Carassius auratus and the freshwater butterflyfish Pantodon buchholzi, and cerebellar connections only in the latter species, since for C. auratus these connections are already established. Expand
