Abstract

The hippocampus is a critical region of the brain involved in memory and learning and is composed of layered, interconnected regions. Despite the importance of understanding normal hippocampal anatomy for studying its functions and disease processes that affect it, didactic educational visualizations are severely limited. To help graduate students and scientists better understand and visualize the human hippocampus, a web-based interactive resource was created that included a 3D animation and manipulatable 3D models of hippocampal regions. These resources allow users to expand their comprehension of this complex anatomy.
