The centrum semiovale, semioval center or centrum ovale [1] is the central area of white matter found underneath the cerebral cortex. [2] The white matter, located in each hemisphere between the cerebral cortex and nuclei, as a whole has a semioval shape. It consists of cortical projection fibers, association fibers and cortical fibers. It continues ventrally as the corona radiata.
