There is, however, some evidence of the lateralized function in the hippocampal formation (30,21).
In monkey, increased ipsilateral linkage was shown between hippocampal formation as well as the subiculum and neocortex in evolutionary development, which indicates the development of hemispheric specialization (31).
Asymmetry of neuron numbers in the hippocampal formation of prenatally malnourished and normally nourished rats: A stereological investigation.
Structures of the limbic system include all cortical and subcortical structures that form the border of the lateral ventricles: the hippocampal formation, the dentate gyrus, the pyriform cortex of the anterior hippocampal gyrus and the cingulate gyrus.
The fornix, a band of white fibers, forms the main efferent system of the hippocampal formation.
