Exploration of the meninges and brain in situ
Lateral ventricle viewed from behind; left internal cerebral vein
The occipital and temporal lobes have been resected to expose the cavity of the lateral ventricle and its contained choroid plexus. The left internal cerebral vein (25) and its tributaries are visible within the transverse fissure.
