|Title||Unpublished paper, 'On the structure and functions of the human corpus callosum' by D J [David James] Hamilton|
|Description||Hamilton finds that 'the fibres in the tip of the frontal lobe run almost directly backwards. A short way behind this they become concentrated in an oval shaped area. This oval shaped area still further back divides into three distinct bundles'. He names these bundles the tractus internus, tractus medius, and tractus externus, and goes on to describe their physiology in further detail.|
