The retrosplenial cortex is situated at the crossroads between the hippocampal formation and many areas of the neocortex, but few studies have examined the connections between the hippocampal formation and the retrosplenial cortex in detail. Each subdivision of the retrosplenial cortex projects to a discrete terminal field in the hippocampal formation. The retrosplenial dysgranular cortex (Rdg) projects to the postsubiculum, caudal parts of parasubiculum, caudal and lateral parts of the… Expand
Connections of the retrosplenial granular b cortex in the rat
TLDR
The present experiments demonstrate that, in the rat, Rgb is a major nodal point for the integration and subsequent distribution of information to and from the hippocampal formation, the midline limbic and visual cortices, and the thalamus. Expand
Medial Temporal Lobe Projections to the Retrosplenial Cortex of the Macaque Monkey
TLDR
In this study, neither the amygdala nor the perirhinal cortex were found to have appreciable projections to the retrosplenial cortex, although injections in either medial temporal region revealed efferent fibers that pass very close or even within this cortical area. Expand
Cingulate cortex projections to the parahippocampal region and hippocampal formation in the rat
TLDR
Topographical and laminar characteristics of cingulate projections to the parahippocampal region and hippocampal formation in the rat using the anterograde tracers Phaseolus vulgaris‐leucoagglutinin and biotinylated dextranamine are determined. Expand
Entorhinal cortex of the rat: Cytoarchitectonic subdivisions and the origin and distribution of cortical efferents
TLDR
The overall organization of the hippocampal‐cortical connectivity in the rat is largely comparable to that in the monkey, and hippocampal output can reach widespread portions of the neocortex through a relay in a very restricted part of the entorhinal cortex. Expand
Efferent connections of the anteromedial nucleus of the thalamus of the rat
TLDR
The anteromedial nucleus of the thalamus (AM) was investigated using anterograde and retrograde tracing techniques and suggest that AM influences a widespread area of limbic cortex. Expand
Parahippocampal and retrosplenial connections of rat posterior parietal cortex
TLDR
Parahippocampal connections of each posterior parietal subdivision and the neighboring secondary visual cortex are investigated using conventional retrograde and anterograde tracers as well as transsynaptic retrograde tracing with a modified rabies virus to indicate that posteriorParietal cortex is moderately connected with the retrosplenial cortex. Expand
Organization of projections from the medial temporal cortical areas to the ventral striatum in macaque monkeys
TLDR
It is possible that the ventral shell of the NA is the main integration site of the limbic and sensory memory coming from the EC, perirhinal cortex, and PHC. Expand
Associational projections of the anterior midline cortex in the rat: intracingulate and retrosplenial connections
TLDR
It is suggested that cortical-cortical projections from anterior cingulate cortex and prelimbic cortex to infralimbic cortex may be important for linking learning processes with an autonomic nervous system response, but the paucity of direct projections between these areas calls this hypothesis into question. Expand
Cortical afferents of the perirhinal, postrhinal, and entorhinal cortices of the rat
TLDR
The present study investigated the origins of cortical input to the rat perirhinal and postrhinal cortices and the lateral and medial subdivisions of the entorhinal cortex (LEA and MEA) by placing injections of retrograde tracers at several locations within each region. Expand
Organization of intrinsic connections of the retrosplenial cortex in the rat
The retrosplenial cortex consists of areas 29a–d, each of which has different connections with other cortical and subcortical regions. Although these areas also make complex interconnections thatExpand

Connections of the retrosplenial granular a cortex in the rat
TLDR
The present experiments use both retrograde and anterograde tracing techniques to characterize the afferent and efferent connections of Rga and suggest that Rga integrates thalamic with limbic information. Expand
Projections from the laterodorsal nucleus of the thalamus to the limbic and visual cortices in the rat
TLDR
It is demonstrated that in the rat, LD projects to infraradiata, precentral agranular, retrosplenial, visual, visual (area 18b), subicular, and entorhinal cortices, and each area of LD has a distinct projection to limbic and adjacent neocortex. Expand
Connections of the retrosplenial dysgranular cortex in the rat
Although the retrosplenial dysgranular cortex (Rdg) is situated both physically and connectionally between the hippocampal formation and the neocortex, few studies have focused on the connections ofExpand

TLDR
The results demonstrate a highly organized thalamic projection to the retrosplenial cortex of the rat. Expand
The postsubicular cortex in the rat: characterization of the fourth region of the subicular cortex and its connections
TLDR
The present experiments demonstrate that the postsubiculum is a distinct area of the subicular cortex and suggest that they subserve different roles in the processing and integration of limbic system information. Expand
Projections from the cingulate cortex in the rat.
TLDR
The cingulate cortex appears as a vast and differential neural mechanism receiving major impulse afflux from the limbic system by way of the anterior and laterodorsal thalamic nuclei, and exerting its influence primarily upon brain structures not directly involved in any of the currently recognized limbic circuits.

The topography of the mesencephalic and pontine projections from the cingulate cortex of the rat
TLDR
A detailed analysis of the cingulate cortex projection from the rat midline cortex to the midbrain and pons is performed using the autoradiographic technique to demonstrate a very precise topography of brainstem projections which may underlie the visceral and somatic motor functions of the Cingulate Cortex.

The connections of presubiculum and parasubiculum in the rat
TLDR
The results suggest that the subicular cortex is considerably more complex than previously envisioned and indicate that each segment may subserve a distinct role in the processing of information by the hippocampal formation. Expand
