As an American, I pronounce it in conversation like: ent-ur-RYE-null. In IPA I would say something like /ˌɛntəɹ'ɑɪnəl/ -- not sure whether to include the r in the second or third syllable. digfarenough (talk) 23:08, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
I am pretty sure that the EC is not located at the caudal end of temporal lobe but rostral in rodents, too. It closley associated w/ olfactory sense and memory. thats all rostral of fossa interpeduncularis. please correct if I am false. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:30, 27 May 2008 (UTC)
No, I'm pretty sure it is correct to say that EC is located at the caudal end of the temporal lobe in rats. I asked a labmate who slices such brains often and she agreed. It is certainly involved in olfaction and memory (it actually sits high atop the cortical hierarchy and is rather involved in all sensory modalities, I think). Do you have a reference to support the claim that it is rostral of the interpeduncular fossa in rats? I checked Paxinos and Watson, 4th edition. This verified that the IPF is located around -4.5mm bregma in rats, whereas entorhinal cortex is found a few mm further caudal (in fact, EC in rats runs right up the back of the brain, just ventral to some visual areas). digfarenough (talk) 23:08, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
