Projection fibers are usually considered as those fibers that connect the cerebral cortex to subcortical structures and vice versa. The stria terminalis connects the amygdala to the hypothalamus - i.e., two subcortical structures. So, on this basis they are not projection fibers. But because they connect subcortical structures they are referred to as 'association fibers'.
There is little attention given to the Carotid Body but it is the smallest organ at the size of a grain of rice. The pineal gland--it's 8mm long in human bodies. It's located above the superior colliculus and behind and beneath the stria medullaris. It's also a part of the epithalamus. An organ is a complex structure formed by 2 or more tissues. If we use this definition, then a corpuscle of touch (Meissner's corpuscle) would be an organ and much, much smaller than the pineal gland. A corpuscle of touch consists of nerve endings (dendrites) and a connective tissue covering. Another candidate for the smallest organ would be a taste bud, but I think corpuscles of touch would be smaller. A more appropriate question might be, "What is the smallest organ that is part of the gross anatomy of the human body." The pineal gland might be the correct answer for this.
The efferent fibres of amygdaloid nucles make up the stria terminalis.
It serves as a pathway for association of olfactory and visceral functions.
It receives the afferent olfactory fibres via the stria medullaris thalami.
There is no actual Latin word strial. There is a rare English word "strial" that means "belonging or related to the stria", an anatomical term referring to a band of nerve fibers in the brain.The word stria occurs in Latin with the meaning "furrow; channel".
