nucleus of field H
Acronym: FH
The term nucleus of field H refers to a group of neurons in the subthalamus that are scattered among fibers of field H and along its dorsal border in the human ( Carpenter-2004 ) and the macaque ( Shantha-1968 ). In the rat ( Swanson-2004 ) and the mouse ( Hof-2000 ) the cellular component dominates the area occupied by field H and the other fields of Forel, which are prodominantly white matter in the primates. Functionally the nucleus of field H belongs to the reticular formation (functional) of the subcortical motor system ( Swanson-2004 ).
