neothalamus

An obsolete term for what was regarded as the phylogenically newest component of the thalamus (the dorso- and ventrolateral nuclei). Becauses reciprocal connections are now known to exist between the former neothalamus and the former palleothalamus (the midline or medial nuclei), both terms have fallen into disfavour.
