Exploration of the brain from its lateral aspect
Ependymal lining of lateral ventricle after removal of caudate nucleus
The caudate nucleus has been completely removed by scraping it away from its ependymal covering which lines the lateral ventricle. Fibers of the radiation of the rostral lamina of the corpus callosum (3) bound the lower medial part of the head of the caudate nucleus and are now exposed.
