The corpus striatum is a derivative of the thickened basal part of the telecephalon. Nerve fibres of the developing internal capsule cut through the developing corpus striatum and divide it into medial and lateral parts. The medial part becomes the caudate nucleus. The lateral part forms the lentiform nucleus.
