Good evening,

I'm translating a medical text, but I got stuck here: "sede necleo-capsure sinistra". Here a bit of context: "Si osserva sfumata areola ipodensa in sede nucleo-capsulare sinistra e parietale omolaterale di verosimile significato ischemico recente.

Many thanks,

located in the left internal capsule


Explanation:
The internal capsule is a white matter structure situated in the inferomedial part of each cerebral hemisphere of the brain. It carries information past the basal ganglia, separating the caudate nucleus and the thalamus from the putamen and the globus pallidus. The internal capsule contains both ascending and descending axons, going to and coming from the cerebral cortex.

Reference: Nucleo lenticolare

Reference information:
Nucleo lenticolare

Il nucleo lenticolare appartiene a quelle formazioni sottocorticali di sostanza grigia, situate profondamente negli emisferi cerebrali, che prendono il nome di "nuclei (o gangli) della base", i quali comprendono il nucleo caudato, il nucleo acumbens septi, il putamen, il globus pallidus, il nucleo subtalamico (di Luys) e la sostanza nera. Tali formazioni sono fondamentali per il controllo del movimento rappresentando, in particolare, la componente più rilevante del sistema extrapiramidale.

Il nucleo lenticolare è scomponibile in due porzioni separate dalla lamina midollare laterale, una più esterna, di colore più intenso e denominata putamen, e una interna più chiara che prende il nome di globus pallidus, mentre un ulteriore lamina (lamina midollare mediale) sepimenta il globus pallidus in una porzione interna ed una esterna. Nel suo insieme, il nucleo lenticolare è separato medialmente, attraverso la capsula interna, dal porzione laterale del talamo, mentre i suoi confini laterali sono dati dalla capsula esterna che lo separa dal claustro.
