Hippocampus definition: A curved elevation of gray matter extending the entire length of the floor of the temporal horn of the lateral ventricle. The hippocampus, subiculum, and DENTATE GYRUS constitute the hippocampal formation. Sometimes authors include the ENTORHINAL CORTEX in the hippocampal formation.
hippocampus definition: a layer of gray matter lying along the floor of the lateral ventricle of the brain, comprised of cholinergic and possibly glutamatergic fibers, believed to be the critical brain structure underlying learning and memory.
Hippocampus definition: A curved gray matter structure of the temporal lobe lying on the floor of the lateral ventricle of the brain.
Neurotrophin 3 definition: A neurotrophic factor involved in regulating the survival of visceral and proprioceptive sensory neurons. It is closely homologous to nerve growth factor beta and BRAIN-DERIVED NEUROTROPHIC FACTOR.
Neurotrophin 3 definition: Expressed in brain and peripheral tissues, human NTF3 Gene (NGF-Beta Family) encodes secreted 257-aa 29-kDa (precursor) Neurotrophin 3, a neurotrophin closely related to NGF and BDNF that seems to control survival and differentiation of neurons and may be involved in maintenance of adult nervous system. The mature NTF3 peptide is identical in all mammals examined including human, pig, rat, and mouse. (NCI)
Parahippocampal Gyrus definition: A convolution on the inferior surface of each cerebral hemisphere, lying between the hippocampal and collateral sulci. (Dorland, 28th ed)
CA1 Region, Hippocampal definition: One of four subsections of the hippocampus described by Lorente de No, located furthest from the DENTATE GYRUS.
CA2 Region, Hippocampal definition: A subsection of the hippocampus, described by Lorente de No, that is located between the HIPPOCAMPUS CA1 FIELD and the HIPPOCAMPUS CA3 FIELD.
CA3 Region, Hippocampal definition: A subsection of the hippocampus, described by Lorente de No, that is located between the HIPPOCAMPUS CA2 FIELD and the DENTATE GYRUS.
hippocampus development definition: The progression of the hippocampus over time from its initial formation until its mature state. [GO_REF:0000021, GOC:cls, GOC:dgh, GOC:dph, GOC:jic, GOC:mtg_15jun06, ISBN:0878937420]
