Exploration of the cerebellum and brain stem from above and to the right
Dentate nucleus, brachium conjunctivum, uncinate bundle (of Russell) and lateral lemniscus
The white matter of the cerebellum has been peeled away so that the capsule of the dentate nucleus (6) is visible and some of the gray convolutions of the nucleus exposed (5). The right side of the anterior medullary velum (13) is turned medially and the brachium conjunctivum (14) more fully exposed. The lateral lemniscus and the uncinate bundle of Russell are both visible as they cross the brachium conjunctivum.
