perforant pathway

A pathway of fibres originating in the lateral part of the entorhinal area, perforating the subiculum of the hippocampus, and running into the stratum moleculare of the hippocampus, where these fibres synapse with others that go to the dentate gyrus. It is also called the perforating fasciculus.
