Exploration of the brain from the medial aspect
Hippocampus, fimbria, crus of fornix, inferior and posterior horns of lateral ventricle
The inferior horn of the lateral ventricle was widely opened by cutting away the sublenticular and retrolenticular parts of the internal capsule and much of the amygdaloid nucleus. The specimen is viewed somewhat from in front so that the posterior horn of the ventricle is visible. The tapetum and occipital radiation of the corpus callosum are seen in relation to this horn.
