Vergas ventricle

From Biology-Online Dictionary | Biology-Online Dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search



A horizontal cleft formed between the commisura fornicis (or psalterium) and the corpus callosum when the two commissural plates failed to fuse completely during fetal development.


The Verga's ventricle is not a true ventricle since it did not develop from the central canal of the nueral tube and it does not contain cerebrospinal fluid nor it is lined by ependyma.

Word origin: named after the Italian psychiatrist and neurologist Andrea Verga who first described it in 1851.
