I know the Pineal Gland is right in back of the the Thalamus.

But how does the Pineal Gland conect to the Brain?

 

Is there a Pineal Gland Salk that conects to something?

this wikipedia page will give you some idea and references which should answer your question.

 

(it doesn't appear to be connected by a stalk, just to the blood supply and, maybe, anchored by connective tissue).

I know the Pineal Gland is the size of a Bea and is inback of the The Thalamus.

 

And it reacts to Light and helps Sleep and Wake Cycles..

 

But is the Pineal Gland have a Stalk that conects it to anything in the Brain?

you asked this question before (http://www.protocol-...lk/#entry165956). have you explored the references?

Please ask your question once, not three times. Have you looked at the answers the last two times you asked this question?

I see some people ask about Brain Slices so I think I can ask my Q/A here.

 

The Pineal Gland is behind the Thalamus but does it conect to anything through a Pineal Stalk?

 

I did go to Wiki and I read all about the Pineal Gland but not how it conects to anything.

Do you mean anatomical or functional connections, and in which species ? Textbooks of (neuro)anatomy are a good resource there. For instance I found this one that is relatively recent - p.155 deals with the histology and the neuronal connections of the human pineal gland and stalk:

 

http://books.google.... Stalk"&f=false

 

by the way, I found it via a simple google search for   "pineal stalk"   and on another note, I'm not a mod but I think in this forum it is common to post the question just once, in one subforum, and if the answer is not helpful or further questions arise you post again beneath it and thus there should be just one single thread per topic and not four.

Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.

Thank you I am talking about the Pineal Gland in people.

 

I know the Pituitary Gland is connected to the HypoThalamus Gland through it's own stalk.

 

I thought maybe the Pineal Gland connected to the Thalamus through it's own stalk?

 

And I did google Pineal Stalk and I never get anything about Pineal Gland Stalks.

though no idea about neuro-anatomy (except few courses, therefore no idea if wikipedia is reliable here), according to wikipedia yes:

"The pineal gland receives a sympathetic innervation from the superior cervical ganglion. However, a parasympathetic innervation from the pterygopalatine and otic ganglia is also present. Further, some nerve fibers penetrate into the pineal gland via the pineal stalk (central innervation). Also, neurons in the trigeminal ganglion innervate the gland with nerve fibers containing the neuropeptide PACAP."


One must presume that long and short arguments contribute to the same end. - Epicurus
...except casandra's that belong to the funniest, most interesting and imaginative (or over-imaginative?) ones, I suppose.

That is....if she posts at all.
