Hippocampus CA3 pyramidal cell

Name: Hippocampus CA3 pyramidal cell
Description: This is the major output neuron in area CA3 of the hippocampus. It receives input from mossy fibers of the dentate gyrus. Its axon projects to the contralateral hippocampus and subcortically to the septal nucleus, and sends axon collaterals called Shaffer collaterals to the nearby CA1 region.
