The retrosplenial region is a brain area and part of the cingulate cortex. It is defined by Brodmann area 29 and the Brodmann area 26.

FunctionEdit

Retrosplenial cortex has dense reciprocal projections with both the anterior thalamic nuclei and the hippocampus. In humans fMRI studies implicate the posterior cingulate region in the recall of episodic information. The retrosplenial cortex is one of several brain areas that when damaged produce anterograde amnesia.
