WORLD NEUROSURGERY, cilt.110, ss.133-144, 2018 (SCI İndekslerine Giren Dergi)
BACKGROUND: Recently, neuromodulation through deep brain stimulation (DBS) has appeared as a new surgical procedure in the treatment of some types of dementia and epilepsy. The mammillothalamic and mammillotegmental tracts are involved among the new targets. To our knowledge, a review article focused specifically on these mammillary body efferents is lacking in the medical literature. Their contribution to memory is, regrettably, often overlooked.
