Neurons that accompany the stria terminalis as it loops over the internal capsule have been termed collectively the supracapsular bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BSTS). They form two cell columns, a lateral column and a considerably smaller medial column. The lateral column merges rostrally with the lateral bed nucleus of the stria terminalis and caudally with the central amygdaloid nucleus (central extended amygdala components). The medial column is continuous with the medial bed nucleus… CONTINUE READING
