The fornix of the brain is a c-shaped bundle of nerve fibers in the limbic system, functioning as the main output tract of the hippocampus and as a commissural fiber.
The fornix is situated on both sides of the medial aspect of the cerebral hemispheres and comprised of:
The primary function of the fornix is to connect the hippocampus to the mammillary bodies of the hypothalamus, the mammillary bodies to the anterior nuclei of the thalamus and the hippocampus to the septal nuclei in the nucleus accumbens.
It is part of the limbic system, which is involved in motivation, learning, emotion, memory and cognitive functions.
