2-Minute Neuroscience: The Hippocampus


In my 2-Minute Neuroscience videos I simplistically explain neuroscience topics in 2 minutes or less. In this video, I cover the hippocampus. I discuss its location in the temporal lobe as well as the other structures that surround it and make up the hippocampal formation, such as the dentate gyrus and hippocampal gyrus. I also describe the flow of information through the hippocampus, starting at the entorhinal cortex and traveling through the dentate gyrus, hippocampus, subiculum, and then to a variety of areas and pathways.
