|Tela chorioidea of the third ventricle, and the choroid plexus of the left lateral ventricle, exposed from above.|
|Gray's||subject #189 838|
The crura (posterior pillars) of the fornix are prolonged backward from the body.
They are flattened bands, and at their commencement are intimately connected with the under surface of the corpus callosum.
Here it lies along the concavity of the hippocampus, on the surface of which some of its fibers are spread out to form the alveus, while the remainder are continued as a narrow white band, the fimbria hippocampi, which is prolonged into the uncus of the hippocampal gyrus.
