It forms the lateral wall of the third ventricle and is made up principally of the hypothalamus, epithalamus, thalamus, and subthalamus (also termed ventral thalamus).

16) serves as a blood−CSF barrier through the specialized structure of the ependymal cell lining of the plexus. The endothelial cells are bonded by tight junctions that bar the passage of high molecular weight substances. This is what is generally meant by the blood−brain barrier. Unlike the capillaries of the general circulation, choroid plexus cells have no intercellular pores and fenestrations. Instead, there are numerous microvilli, and the cells contain several enzymes that transport ions, such as Na+ and K+, and metabolites, such as glucose.

The medial (mediodorsal) nuclear group receives inputs from the amygdala, hypothalamus, and from other thalamic nuclei. This nuclear group projects extensively and reciprocally to the prefrontal cortex and mediates emotion and mood. The intralaminar nuclei lie in the internal medullary lamina of the thalamus. These nuclei include the centromedian nucleus and parafascicular nucleus. These nuclei receive afferents from the spinothalamic and trigeminothalamic tracts, and also from the brain stem reticular formation.
