septum_verum

Septum Verum (true septum) is a region in the lower medial part of the telencephalon that separates the two cerebral hemispheres.

The human septum consists of two parts: The septum pellucidum (translucent septum), a thin membrane consisting of white matter and glial cells that separate the lateral ventricles, and the lower, precommisural septum verum, which consists of nuclei and grey matter.

The term is sometimes used synonymously with Area Septalis, to refer to the precommisural part of the lower base of the telencephalon. The Septum verum contains the septal nuclei, which are usually considered part of the limbic system.
