Descriptor epitálamo
Scope note: Subdivisión dorsal posterior del diencéfalo. Generalmente se considera que el epitálamo incluye el núcleo de la habénula (HABÉNULA) y los haces de fibras asociados, la GLÁNDULA PINEAL y el techo epitelial del tercer ventrículo. Los núcleos paraventriculares anterior y posterior del tálamo se incluyen en el NÚCLEO TALÁMICO, a pesar de que se desarrollan a partir de la misma masa pronuclear que el núcleo epitalámico por lo que, en ocasiones, se consideran parte del epitálamo.

Scope note: The dorsal posterior subdivision of the diencephalon. The epithalamus is generally considered to include the habenular nuclei (HABENULA) and associated fiber bundles, the PINEAL BODY, and the epithelial roof of the third ventricle. The anterior and posterior paraventricular nuclei of the thalamus are included with the THALAMIC NUCLEI although they develop from the same pronuclear mass as the epithalamic nuclei and are sometimes considered part of the epithalamus.
