The following is a preliminary version of a homology and transitional proprosal developed by Aton Reiner and Andreas Csillag as a result of discussions with the ThinkTank group.

For the palliam, it is proposed to replace the suffix "striatum" with the suffix "pallium", and to change the meaning of the prefixes, but keeping the resultant abbreviations the same. The subpallium and midbrain structures are changed to those of mammals. (updated 1/2/2001)
