Definitions

The lentiform nucleus or lenticular nucleus comprises the putamen and the globus pallidus within the basal ganglia in some species, e.g., humans, where this set of structures form a large, cone-shaped mass of gray matter just lateral to the internal capsule. The lenticular nucleus can be considered purely a descriptive term, as it is not a nucleus in the classic sense. The putamen is cytoarchitecturally and hodologically distinct from the globus pallidus. Swanson ([Swanson, 2003](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12724158))refers to the lentiform nucleus as "an arbitrary grouping of adjacent structures". The lentiform nucleus or lenticular nucleus comprises the putamen and the globus pallidus within the basal ganglia. It is a large, cone-shaped mass of gray matter just lateral to the internal capsule. [WP,unvetted].
