|Brain: Crus of fornix|
Diagram of the fornix.
Tela chorioidea of the third ventricle, and the choroid plexus of the left lateral ventricle, exposed from above.
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.
