The commissural and intrinsic connections of the hippocampus were studied using the Fink‐Heimer method and the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) uptake technique. 
The connections of the hippocampal region New observations on efferent connections in the guinea pig, and their functional implications *
The efferent connections of the hippocampal region are dealt with, and the functional implications of these projections are considered.
Connections of the pigeon dorsomedial forebrain studied with WGA‐HRP and 3H‐proline
The afferent‐efferent connections of the pigeon dorsomedial forebrain, which is composed of the “hippocampus” (Hp) and “parahippocampus” (APH), presumed homologues of the mammalian hippocampal
Lesion‐induced rerouting of hippocampal mossy fibers in developing but not in adult rats
The organization of the hippocampal mossy fiber system which projects from the granule cells of fascia dentata to the pyramidal cells of the hippocampal regio inferior (CA3) was studied after chronic
Low frequency stimulation of ventral hippocampal commissures reduces seizures in a rat model of chronic temporal lobe epilepsy
Purpose:  To investigate the effects of low frequency stimulation (LFS) of a fiber tract for the suppression of spontaneous seizures in a rat model of human temporal lobe epilepsy.
Hippocampal neurons grafted to newborn rats establish efferent commissural connections
The formation of commissural projections from developing rat hippocampal neurons grafted to the hippocampus of newborn littermates was examined by retrograde axonal transport of the fluorescent dye Fluorogold, which resulted in labelling of normal, commissurally projecting neurons in the dentate hilus and CA3 of the host hippocampus.
The commissural connections of the monkey hippocampal formation
The commissural connections of the hippocampal formation have been analyzed in the monkey using both anterograde and retrograde labeling techniques and a number of striking differences are observed.


Some intrinsic connections of the hippocampus in the rat: An experimental analysis
Some internal pathways of the hippocampus were mapped in adult rats using Fink‐Heimer silver impregnation methods for the demonstration of anterograde axon degeneration.
Autoradiographic studies of the commissural and ipsilateral association connections of the hippocampus and dentate gyrus. I. The commissural connections
The commissural connections of the two major cytoarchitectonic fields of the hippocampus (fields CA1 and CA3) and of the dentate gyrus of the rat have been studied autoradiographically following
Distribution of commissural afferents to the hippocampus of the rabbit
The commissural connections of the hippocampus (fascia dentata and Ammon's horn) were investigated in the rabbit using a Fink‐Heimer silver impregnation method after the transection of either or both
Commissural connections of the dentate area in the rat
The commissural connections of the area dentata were investigated with the Fink‐Heimer silver impregnation method and the commissural terminals in the hilus of the fascia dentata further studied by
Organization of the mossy fiber system of the rat studied in extended hippocampi. II. Experimental analysis of fiber distribution with silver impregnation methods
The mossy fibers, a major intrinsic hippocampal pathway connecting the dentate granule cells with the pyramidal cells in CA4 and CA3, have been reexamined in rats using mainly Fink‐Heimer silver
The distribution of septal projections to the hippocampus of the rat
Terminal degeneration following lesions of the medial septal nucleus or of the contralateral hippocampus was mapped and compared with the distribution of acetylcholinesterase in the hippocampal formation of the rat, providing further support for the hypothesis that the enzyme is located in the sePTal efferents.
Laminar differentiation of the hippocampus, fascia dentata and subiculum in developing rats, observed with the timm sulphide silver method
The laminar staining of the rat hippocampal region with the Timm sulphide silver method is from studies on adult rats known to depend on the various fibersystems terminating in these laminae. In
Distribution of hippocampal mossy fibers in the rat. An experimental study with silver impregnation methods
The distribution of the axons that arise in the fascia dentata and go to the hippocampus proper are dealt with by means of three‐dimensional reconstructions.
Cells of origin of entorhinal cortical afferents to the hippocampus and fascia dentata of the rat
The pathway from the entorhinal cortical region to the hippocampal formation has previously been shown to be comprised of two sub‐systems, one of which projects predominantly to the ipsilateral
