Exploration of the brain from its superior aspect
General orientation view of dissection of diencephalon, internal capsule and lentiform nucleus
The lentiform nucleus and internal capsule have been further cut away posteriorly. The geniculate bodies are sectioned horizontally. Relations of these structures to major landmarks of the brain are visible.

3 . Medullary substance of inferior frontal gyrus
4 . Lateral fissure
5 . Internal capsule
6 . Lentiform nucleus
7 . Cerebral peduncle (cut across)
8 . Lateral geniculate body
