"The anterior and mediodorsal thalamus are important components of the limbic system, which plays a role in the expression and experience of emotion. Reciprocal connections between the mediodorsal thalamus and the dorsolateral prefrontal, orbitofrontal, cingulate, and insular cortices influence the limbic system by integrating and redistributing emotionally relevant stimuli to the frontal lobes. The anteroventral and anteromedial thalamic nuclei also play a role in this circuit by connecting frontohippocampal structures with the anterior cingulate and entorhinal cortex.(PMID:15229061) "
The mediodorsal and anteroventral/anteromedial nuclei play important roles in connecting subcortical limbic structures to the limbic cortex.

2. User can drag the nodes to rearrange the layout of the network. Click the node will enter the report page of the node.
Right-click will show also the menus to link to the report page of the node and remove the node and related edges.
Hover the node will show the level of the node and hover the edge will show the evidence/description of the edge.
3. The network is generated using Cytoscape Web
