The hippocampus is comprised of the dentate gyrus and the CA1, CA2, and CA3 pyramidal cell fields. The hippocampal formation consists of the hippocampus and the subiculum. The adjacent entorhinal, perirhinal, and parahippocampal cortices comprise the parahippocampal region (Fig. 1). These limbic subregions differ in their cellular organization and connectivity but are commonly implicated in memory and emotion processing.
