The transverse fissure is the lateral extension of the ambient cistern that connects with the choroidal fissure superolaterally and hippocampal fissure inferolaterally. These three fissures are collectively known as the perihippocampal fissures 1. The transverse fissure separates the thalamus superiorly from the parahippocampal gyrus inferiorly 2.
Some sources also describe an even more medial part of the transverse fissure that separates the thalamus from the fornix and corpus callosum 3.
History and etymology
The structure is named after French anatomist Marie-François Xavier Bichat 4.
