|A||Anterior thalamic nuclei|
|C||Anterior hypothalamic nuclei|
I. The fornix connects the hippocampus to the mamillary bodies which are in turn connected to the anterior thalamic nuclei of the thalamus by mammillothalamic tract.
II. The anterior nuclei of thalamus project to the cingulate cortex and from there connections to the hippocampus complete a complex closed circuit."
