Exploration of those parts of the brain supplied by the posterior cerebral artery
Sublenticular part of internal capsule
More of the lateral geniculate body has been cut away and the optic tract divided and removed. Fibers of the geniculocalcarine tract (14) are seen as they extend outward from the geniculate body. This tract appears to pass rather directly laterally instead of looping forward as do the fibers of the temporothalamic fasciculus seen previously. The temporopontine tract (15) is seen to pass across from the temporal lobe to enter the most lateral portion of the cerebral peduncle. Fibers of the ansa lenticularis (16) are visible although the globus pallidus from which they originate is not yet in view.
