We describe novel connections of a vasopressinergic projection from the paraventricular nuclei of the hypothalamus to the hippocampal CA2 and reciprocally between CA2 and supramammillary nuclei, suggesting regulatory roles for CA2 in social and emotional input for memory processing. We confirm CA2 afferents from neurons in the ipsilateral entorhinal cortex and bilateral dorsal CA2 and CA3 and CA2 efferents to bilateral medial septal, diagonal bands of Broca, and median raphe nuclei and to dorsal CA1, CA2, and CA3 bilaterally.
