- n. A retrohippocampal isocortical structure in the rodent brain
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But in the August issue of Nature Neuroscience, Kavli researchers report finding many grid cells intermingled with head direction and border cells in the presubiculum and parasubiculum areas of the brain, which are locations that are the source of some of the major inputs of medial entorhinal cortex.
The presubiculum and the parasubiculum are not the same as the medial entorhinal cortex but share some properties and connections.
To quantify the lesions, we measured the total volume of remaining tissue within the dentate gyrus and CA fields (including the adjacent fimbria), as well as the total volume of remaining tissue in retrohippocampal structures (subiculum, presubiculum and parasubiculum and entorhinal cortex).
Hippocampally-lesioned rats also had variable damage to the subiculum, postsubiculum, presubiculum, parasubiculum and entorhinal cortex.
The vertical axis is the estimated volume (combined over both hemispheres) of the retrohippocampal cortex, which we define as the subiculum, presubiculum, parasubiculum, and entorhinal cortex.
