The purpose of this illustration is to depict the relationship of the corpus callosum to structures of the hippocampus, including the medial and lateral longitudinal striae, indusium griseum, fornix, mammillary bodies, and the hippocampal gyri and commissure. An inset introduces the orientation of the anatomy and position of the planes of section.
The intact left side of the corpus callosum highlights its expansion into the white matter of the cerebrum. The relationship of the hippocampal structures is revealed via selective glass-like transparency of the corpus callosum and thalamus. Didactic colors (“colorblind-safe”) were used to clarify the position and path of hippocampal structures. These treatments provide a novel overview of rarely-documented structures such as the gyrus of Anders Retzius and the fasciolar gyrus.
