Our results provide insight into the candidate genes involved in the mamillary
layer formation and calcification that is crucial to the mechanical properties of avian eggshells.
Size of mamillary
bodies in health and disease: Useful measurements in neuroradiological diagnosis of Wernicke's encephalopathy.
Memory processes occur throughout most of the brain (striped area) but certain areas within and bordering on the limbic system - notably the hippocampus and mamillary
bodies - appear indispensable to memory.
Approximately half the fibers descend toward the anterior commissure; the rest branch to the thalamus, the mamillary
bodies, the midbrain tegmentum and the reticular formation.

Demyelination of the mamillary
bodies in alcoholism: A combined morphological and biochemical study.
The larger fascicles of the multifidus muscle originate from the spinous process of the vertebrae at least three segments above their level of insertion, and run inferiorly, laterally and anteriorly to insert into the mamillary
process and zygapophysial joint capsule (Lewin et al.
