  5. 5. Cingulotomy
  6. 6. Subcallosal gyrus Cingulate gyrus
  7. 7.  Hippocampus.  Indeusm griseum.
  8. 8. 1. Hippocampus proper (horn of Ammon). 2. Dentate nucleus. 3. Subiculum (transition from hippocampus proper to the parahippocampal gyrus). 4. Alveus. 5. Fimbria . 6. Fornix.

  17. 17.  lateral extension of the ambient cistern that separates the thalamus from the parahippocampal gyrus.  The transverse fissure = retro-thalamic (retro-pulvinar cistern).  The transverse cerebral fissure is the next major fissure formed after the longitudinal (interhemispheric) fissure.  The transverse cerebral fissure is the axis around which the temporal lobes curve forwards.
  18. 18. i T = thalamus i = isthmus of parahippocampal gyrus.
  19. 19.  Is superior lateral extension of the transverse fissure, which extends superior to the hippocampus.  The choroidal fissure contains double layered pia matter (tela choroidae), which invaginates the medial wall of the lateral ventricle to form the choroid plexus.  The choroidal fissure is divided into 3 parts:  Body portion.  Atrium portion.  Temporal portion.
  20. 20. Separates between Body portion Body of fornix, superiorly Thalamus, inferiorly Atrial portion Crus of fornix Pulvinar of thalamus. Temporal portion Fimbria of fornix Inferior surface of thalamus.

  22. 22.  Is the inferior lateral extension of the transverse fissure, which separates the hippocampus from the subiculum.
  23. 23.  Crus.  Body.  Anterior column. The fornix represents the major aspect of hippocampal output, comprised of axonal projections from the hippocampus to the mamillary bodies.

  27. 27. The indusium griseum, (a dorsal extension of the hippocampus), forms a symmetric pair of narrow strips of gray matter running caudal-rostrally along the dorsal aspect of the corpus callosum in the sub-cingulate region
  28. 28.  Almond shaped.  Subcortical nucleus located in the temporal lobe.  Anatomically it belongs to the basal ganglia.  Functionally it belongs to the limbic system.
  29. 29.  It is located inside the uncus (a medial protrusion of the temporal lobe).  It is located between the temporal pole (anterior tip of temporal lobe) and Uncal recess of the temporal horn.

  33. 33.  Is a thin leaf between the frontal horns of lateral ventricles.  It is formed of gila & lined by ependyma.
  34. 34.  It is located  inferior to the septum pellucidum,  anterior to the lamina terminalis and  posterior to the subcallosal gyrus. Septum verum = paraterminal gyrus.
