This traditional list does not accord strictly with human thalamic anatomy.

Nuclear groups of the thalamus include:

*anterior nuclear group
**anteroventral nucleus
**anterodorsal nucleus
**anteromedial nucleus
**superficial ("lateral dorsal")
*medial nuclear group (or dorsomedial nucleus)
**parvocellular part
**magnocellular part
*midline nuclear group or paramedian
**paratenial nucleus
**parventricular nucleus
**reuniens nucleus
**rhombodoidal nucleus
*intralaminar nuclear group
**paracentral nucleus
**central lateral nucleus
**central medial nucleus
*centre median parafascicular group
**centromedian nucleus
**parafascicular nucleus
*lateral nuclear group in fact a false entity replaced by
**posterior region
***lateral posterior nucleus belongs to pulvinar
***(lateral dorsal nucleus) belongs to anterior group
**ventral nuclear group
***ventral anterior nucleus
***ventral lateral nucleus
***ventral posterior nucleus
****ventral posterolateral
****ventral posteromedial
*metathalamus no more used for the geniculate group
**medial geniculate body
**lateral geniculate body

*thalamic reticular nucleus part of the ventral thalamus
