|Gray's||subject #189 826|
The olfactory tract is a narrow white band, triangular on coronal section, the apex being directed upward.
- The lateral stria is directed across the lateral part of the anterior perforated substance and then bends abruptly medialward toward the uncus of the hippocampal gyrus.
- The medial stria turns medialward behind the parolfactory area and ends in the subcallosal gyrus; in some cases a small intermediate stria is seen running backward to the anterior perforated substance.
