The term hippocampus is often used synonymously with hippocampal formation which consists of the hippocampus proper or Cornu Ammonis, the dentate gyrus and the subiculum
Hippocampus (proper) plus dentate gyrus and subiculum[definition derived from NIF comments and ontology alignment].
BTO:0000601 is placed here since it includes the DG. GO also includes dentate gyrus development as part of hippocampus development, so we assume when GO says 'hippocampus' it means 'hippocampal formation'. In ABA HPF = (.. subiculum) + HIP, HIP = DG + AH.
- regional part of brain
- structure with developmental contribution from neural crest
