The stria medullaris, also known as stria medullaris thalami, is a fiber bundle containing efferent fibers from the septal nuclei, lateral preoptico-hypothalamic region, and anterior thalamic nuclei to the habenula. It forms a horizontal ridge on the medial surface of the thalamus.

It projects to the habenular nuclei.[1]

It is considered part of the epithalamus in NeuroNames, but part of the thalamus in Terminologia Anatomica.
