Corpus callosum development (mnemonic)

The development of the corpus callosum occurs between the 12th and 16-20th weeks of gestation. It begins with the genu and then continues posteriorly along the body to the splenium. The rostrum is the last part to be formed. 

This can be remembered with the help of this mnemonic:
