septohippocampal nucleus
The term septohippocampal nucleus refers, in the human, to the most caudal of scattered clusters of neurons in the septum pellucidum on the underside of the corpus callosum; they extend from the level of the medial septal nucleus to the CA fields ( Crosby-1962 ). In the rat the septohippocampal nucleus is associated with the lateral septal nucleus throughout its rostro-caudal course toward the CA fields ( Swanson-1998 ).
