Hi all,

I sometimes find it confusing whether to add "the" before brain terminology.
For example, people usually use "the amygdala", " the *superior colliculus*",
but its less clear as to say "primary visual cortex" or "the primary visual
cortex" (I find that both are used). Any idea on this issue? Many thanks.
