Subcortical Structures of the Limbic System

The hippocampal formation is that part of the temporal cortex that lies deep on the medial surface of the temporal lobe. It forms the floor of the temporal horn and extends from the caudal border of the amygdala to the caudal end of the corpus callosum. The axons of the hippocampal formation collect along its superior surface to form the alveus. The fibers of the alveus converge on the medial edge of the hippocampal formation to form the fimbria of the fornix.
