Exploration of those parts of the brain supplied by the posterior cerebral artery
Cingulum and inferior longitudinal fasciculus
In the first stage of the dissection the cortex and immediately subjacent fibers have been scraped away from an area of the inferior aspect of the temporal lobe and medial side of the occipital lobe. Association fiber systems thus exposed are the cingulum (22), leading toward the uncus, and the inferior longitudinal fasciculus (22), seen more posteriorly extending between the occipital and temporal areas. The line of Gennari, characteristic of the visual (striate) cortex, is clearly visible in the sectioned cortex at (17).
