The centrum semiovale is a mass of white matter, superior to the lateral ventricles/corpus callosum, present in each of the cerebral hemispheres under cerebral cortex.

It has a semi-oval shape and contains projection, commissural, and association fibers. Inferiorly these fibres are continuous with the corona radiata.
