Abstract:

The present study entitled “Morphology and Morphometry of few components of Limbic System of brain of Surti Buffalo (Bubalus bubalis)” was carried out at the Department of Veterinary Anatomy and Histology, College of Veterinary Science and A.H., Anand Agricultural University, Anand, Gujarat. For this study, 12 specimens of brain of buffaloes were used and few components of limbic system were recorded with the help of the scientific weighing balance, Vernier callipers, thread and scale. The limbic system is also called as an emotional brain. The few components of limbic system included the thalamus, fornix, hippocampus, caudate nucleus, septum pellucidum, amygdaloid body, and mammillary body. The thalamus was an oval shaped structure. The overall mean value of diameter of thalamus was 1.46±0.03 cm. The fornix was bilateral structure of white fibers which consisted of body, two columns and two crura. The overall mean value of length of fornix was 8.03±0.1 cm. The hippocampus was a curved elevation. The two hippocampi joined together by hippocampus commissure under the corpus callosum. The overall mean value of length and width of hippocampus was 7.77±0.09 and 2.29±0.03 cm and width of hippocampal fimbriae at its widest region was 1.34±0.04 cm. The caudate nucleus was one of the largest visible basal nuclei of brain. It was comma shaped nucleus of grey matter. The overall mean value of length and width of caudate nucleus was 5.7±0.09 cm and 2.31±0.03 cm. The septum pellucidum was thin translucent membrane of two laminae which separates two lateral ventricles. The overall mean value of length and height of septum pellucidum was 3.6±0.12 and 0.52±0.04 cm. The cavum septum pellucidum was a small space between found two laminae of septum pellucidum. The amygdaloid body was oval shaped structure of grey matter. The overall mean value of diameter of amygdaloid body was 0.91±0.04 cm. The mammillary body was a small round body of white matter. The overall mean value of diameter of mammillary body was 0.61±0.02 cm.
