The hippocampus, one of the most phylogenetically preserved structures in the human brain, has been a topic of interest to evolution theorists and cognitive neuroscientists alike. Malfunctions in the hippocampus are hallmark features in a number of psychiatric and neurological conditions, further amplifying interest. Little advancement has been made regarding the neurofunctional topography of the structure. We used high-field, high-resolution neuroimaging techniques to demonstrate convergent evidence on a new theory of hippocampal organization. Data from this project are expected to catalyze efforts in neuroscience and medicine to better understand hippocampal functioning and promote the identification of healthy and aberrant signaling.
