Exploration of a brain cut in frontal section at the splenium of the corpus callosum
Cingulum, fornix, pulvinar and choroidal arteries
On the right side the cingulum is now exposed in its curved course around the splenium. On the left the occipital radiation of the corpus callosum and the hippocampal structures are divided and portions removed to display the crus of the fornix, the pulvinar of the thalamus and branches of the posterior cerebral artery within the area.
