Exploration of the brain from its basal aspect
Arteries of interpeduncular fossa
The numerous branches of the posterior cerebral arteries are illustrated in this close-up view as they enter the posterior perforated substance in the depths of the interpeduncular fossa. A piece of arachnoid membrane covers the left third nerve and cerebral peduncle (right side of view). The space seen between this membrane and the brain represents a portion of the interpeduncular cistern.
