Anatomy of the Hippocampus: High Field MRI Views and Overview

The Hippocampus is a brain structure which is central to the formation of memories. The anatomy of the Hippocampus is a little tricky to understand in terms of its relationship to other structures. There are other anatomy posts on this site including several which look at videos about the Hippocampus. YouTube is a useful web resource for educational videos and it is worth reviewing new videos on a topic of interest periodically. Here are some videos I came across which help to clarify the anatomy of the Hippocampus.
