Hippocampus of the Rat

by John C. Fiala and Josef Spacek


Figure 1. 3D Views of Hippocampus in the Brain

The hippocampal formation is a bilateral structure sandwiched between the cerebral cortex and the thalamus. Figure 1 depicts a reconstruction of the hippocampus (yellow) in its three-dimensional (3D) position within the rat's brain. These 3D reconstructions were made from the serial sections of LONI's Rat Brain Atlas.

A section through the middle of the brain (Figure 2) shows the hippocampal formation in cross-section.
