Exploration of the brain from its lateral aspect
Relations of inferior horn of lateral ventricle; choroidal arteries
The lateral geniculate body, sublenticular part of the internal capsule and the optic tract have been cut away to reveal the course of the choroidal vessels. The choroid plexus has been dissected away in order to expose the vessels. The fornix has been exposed further by cutting away parts of the pulvinar and posterior thalamic radiation.
