cingulum
Acronym:
The term cingulum refers to a fiber pathway that runs longitudinally in the cingulate white matter; it connects portions of the cingulate gyrus, the parietal lobe and the frontal lobe with the parahippocampal gyrus and adjacent structures of the temporal lobe. In the human it is composed of the Cingulum ammonale and the Cingulum limitans and is not readily distinguished in myelin-stained cross-sections ( Carpenter-1983 ). In the rat ( Swanson-1998 ) and mouse ( Paxinos-2001 ) it is more distinguishable.

Also known as: cingulum bundle
