Hippocampal sulcus width and cavities: comparison between patients with Alzheimer disease and nondemented elderly subjects.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The hippocampal fissure is a fetal sulcus that, except for its most medial part (the superficial hippocampal sulcus), is normally obliterated. Hippocampal cavities are residual cysts attributable to lack of hippocampal fissure obliteration. We hypothesized that either hippocampal sulcus enlargement or an increase in number or size of… (More)
