Connectivity has been examined in the hippocampus in great detail by
people such as D.G. Amaral. A good starting reference is "Neurons, numbers
and the hippocampal network", Amaral, Ishizuka & Claiborne, Progress in
Brain Research 83:1-11. The techniques involved are HRP injection into an
in-vitro preparation, then fixed and examined using a computer digitizing
system.
