hippocampal region
The term hippocampal region refers to one of two subdivisions of the hippocampal formation (functional) in the Functional CNS Model - Rat. It is a part of cerebral cortex defined on the basis of cytoarchitecture and function. Located on the ventromedial surface of the hemisphere in the rat, it is composed of the dentate gyrus, the CA fields, the fasciola cinerea and the indusium griseum.
     The hippocampal region contains the same cellular structures as the classical archicortex except for the subiculum and the paraterminal gyrus. In the functional model the subiculum belongs to the retrohippocampal region and the tenia tecta, which may be the rodent equivalent of the primate paraterminal gyrus, is considered part of olfactory areas (rodent) ( Swanson-2004 ).
