Medical Brain Hippocampus help

  1. Jun 2, 2012 #1
    I am reading a lot on the Hippocampus of the Human Brain and I understand what it does.

    But I looked on Wikapedia and google and all over trying to find a good photo of where it is and the shape of it.

    I can not see any good pictures or anything can anyone help?

    If we give you recognition then the person who made the animation will show up wanting recognition, then the person whose brain it's based on will show up wanting recognition, then someone will show up claiming to be God wanting recognition for designing the brain.

    Don't invite people claiming to be God wanting recognition for designing the brain.

    Get rid of cable, and sign up for DirectTV.

    I've not watched TV in, well, I don't know how long, 5 years maybe? If you love a commercial, please share it on PF. I will watch. :smile:
    It took me probably two whole hours to research and compose that most magnificent of posts....:grumpy:

    Just pretend I'm a light hour away next time, and it will all make sense.

    (Or just pretend I'm slow. I'm used to it.):wink:

    ps. This is what we saw on your link:

    220px-MRI_Location_Hippocampus_up..png

    And when we clicked on it, it all looked like Canadian. And who the hell can read Canadian? :tongue2:

    Well to have to deep-fry it first; a side of tartar wouldn't hurt either.

    Brain parts help

    I know that on the Left and Right sides of the Brain is the Temporal Lobes.

    Now inbetween the two Temporal Lobes is a "C" shap part of the Brain called the Hippocamus.

    Now if the two hafes of the Hippocampus are one on eatch side of the innerside of the Temporal Lobes does this meen the Hippocampus goes around the Hypothalamus?

    Because the Hypothalamus is the Center of the Brain in an Ovel Shap and starting on the Bottom left and righ6t side then going up the back and over the top to make the "C" shap is the Hipocampus?

    Thanks

    This shows the location of the hypothalamus:

    If you can open the hippocampus animation in another window you can compare the locations.

    The two hippocampi are actually individual nuclei. Taxi drivers are shown to have a strong correlation with a larger right hippocampus, implying a larger, more detailed memory of city layout.
