The entorhinal cortex is a component of the hippocampal formation characterized by its projection to the dentate gyrus. Cortical input is relayed to the hippocampus through the entorhinal cortex. The entorhinal cortex can be recognized best in mammals, and it reaches its maximal importance in both human and nonhuman primates. In primates, but not in rodents, the olfactory projection from the olfactory bulb is the only direct sensory projection reaching the entorhinal cortex, where it defines a… CONTINUE READING
