Suprapineal recess

Last revised by Craig Hacking on 24 Feb 2019

The suprapineal recess is a small angular recess or diverticulum that forms the posterior wall of the third ventricle superior to the habenular commissure and the larger pineal recess.

Some anatomists describe a single pineal recess rather than separate pineal and suprapineal recesses.
