viz., the corpus callosum, the fornix, and anterior commissures, arise from the laminaterminalis.
Into the ventral part longitudinal fibers from the hippocampus pass to the laminaterminalis, and through that structure to the corpora mamillaria; these fibers constitute the fornix.
A small portion, lying antero-inferiorly between the corpus callosum and fornix, is not invaded by the commissural fibers; it remains thin, and later a cavity, the cavity of the septum pellucidum, forms in its interior.
