Medical Definition of mammillary body. : either of two small rounded bodies that project from the posterior hypothalamus, receive input from the hippocampus via the fornix and relay impulses to the anterior nuclei of the thalamus, and are thought to play a role in memory. — called also corpus albicans.
Function. Mammillary bodies, and their projections to the anterior thalamus via the mammillothalamic tract, are important for recollective memory. The damage of medial mammillary nucleus leads to spatial memory deficit, according to observations in rats with mammillary body lesions.

The mammillary bodies are a pair of small round bodies, located on the undersurface of the brain that, as part of the diencephalon, form part of the limbic system. They are located at the ends of the anterior arches of the fornix. They consist of two groups of nuclei, the medial mammillary nuclei and the lateral mammillary nuclei.
