The cold bath is much damaged, the wall only remaining of the alveus, which is square, the whole incrustation of marble being destroyed.
The main mass of the hippocampus consists of gray substance, but on its ventricular surface is a thin white layer, the alveus, which is continuous with the fimbria hippocampi.
The olfactory projection fibers which arise from the pyramid cells of the uncus and hippocampus and from the polymorphic cells of the dentate gyrus form a dense stratum on the ventricular surface, especially on the hippocampus, called the alveus.
Here it lies along the concavity of the hippocampus, on the surface of which some of its fibers are spread out to form the alveus, while the remainder are continued as a narrow white band, the fimbria hippocampi, which is prolonged into the uncus of the hippocampal gyrus.
Between the polymorphous layer and the ventricular ependyma is the white substance of the alveus.
Pliny (vol.vi. p. 29) says that the canal which united the two seas was navigable, (alveus navigabilis.)
Atque illum in praeceps prono rapit alveus an Fraeterea, tam funt Arduri iidera nobis,
Since the most common cause of chronic constipation, internal sluggishness and uncleanliness, is known, too much cannot be said in condemnation of the wide-spread abuse of "liver and atony persuaders" and the use of irritating suppositories and dilating bougies, candles, etc. The numerous and various drastic purgative nostrums -- which literally fill our medical literature -- and the universal demand for them, are evidence of this very common disease, which disease is rendered worse by the drugs taken for the relief of a foul intestinal alveus.
