Exploration of the brain from its superior aspect
Internal capsule exposed by removing head and body of caudate nucleus
The head and body of the left caudate nucleus have been scraped away to reveal the underlying fibers of the internal capsule radiating upward and forward. Anteriorly a portion of the ependymal covering of the caudate nucleus has been left intact to preserve a semblance of its relation to the anterior horn of the lateral ventricle.
