|Title||Paper, 'On the structure and functional significance of the human corpus callosum' by D J [David James] Hamilton|
|Description||Hamilton writes: 'The results have been obtained by a special mode of preparation formerly described by me [...] 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, and these bundles I have named the tractus internus, tractus medius, and tractus externus.'|
