Looking at three subregions - the cornu ammonis (CA) 1, CA3/dentate gyrus and subiculum - they found that the first two expanded with age, with the most pronounced growth in the right hippocampus.
2008) found hippocampal atrophy in the CA1, CA2, and CA3 regions and the subiculum and presubiculum in patients with DLB, but not in patients with AD.
If the section includes parahippocampal gyrus, the Thal phase of amyloid deposition can easily be determined, as amyloid plaques appear early in neocortex (phase 1), later in CA1 and the subiculum (phase 2), still later in the fascia dentata (phase 3), then in CA4 (phase 4), and finally in cerebellum and brainstem (phase 5).
The effects of hippocampal damage on psychogenic HPA axis stress responses can be localized to the ventral subiculum (vSUB), the main subcortical output of the ventral hippocampus (Herman et al.

The hippocampus, however, is not a homogeneous structure but consists of several histologically and functionally distinct but tightly interconnected subfields: the subiculum with the subdivisions presubiculum, parasubiculum, and subiculum proper; the four cornu ammonis sectors (CA1-4); and the dentate gyrus (DG) [196].

The researchers targeted a key player in the hippocampal "learning system," which includes the hippocampus itself, the subiculum (the major output structure connected to the cortex, the self-aware "thinking" part of the brain), and the adjacent entorhinal cortex.
NFAs are observed mostly in the superior cortex, lateral and inferior cerebral cortices, at the level of the superior and the inferior hippocampus also the striatum pyrimidale subiculum, superior and inferior segments of hippocampus (38,39).
