Anatomic significance of topographical relief in the pars basalis telencephali. Implications in forensic psychopathology

G. S. Drăgoi, I. Marinescu


Abstract: Topographical relief situated in the pars basalis telencephali have always been aspects of interest for anatomists and neurologists with regard to their terming and integration in neuronal systems. The main target of the present work is the macroanatonic analysis of the location and relations of reference anatomic markers of topographical relief on which connections of anatomical and functional areas are based. The study was carried out on human biological samples. Twenty samples of lesionfree encephala were taken from 8 men (aged between 36 and 65), 7 women (aged between 41 and 69) and 5 new-born infants (2 males and 3 females). Based on reference anatomic markers, identification of anatomic and functional area borderlines was done in the subcalloso – olfactory space. According to morphological variability the markers were grouped in 3 classes: a) commissural interconnective markers; b) non-commissural interconnective markers; c) markers modelled by the branches of the anterior cerebral artery. Based on our research and further corroboration with the progress made in the research of topographical relief as well as of the experimental results on septal nuclei, we offer an attempt at clarifying of the semantic content of taxonomy of terms as well as their implication in forensic phychopathology.
Keywords: septum verum, subcallosal area, paraterminal gyrus, paraolfactory area, paraolfactory gyri.
