The entorhinal area is the most highly differentiated cortical field of the hippocampal formation from an anatomical point of view, and is best known as the origin of the perforant pathway, a massive association projection to the molecular layer of the dentate gyrus and Ammon's horn. This pathway is important as the first link in the so-called "trisynaptic circuit," which is thought to form the basic unit of information processing in the hippocampal formation and has been implicated in the… CONTINUE READING
