Microradiograph of eye; central optic pathways and related structures
Relations of optic pathways at base of brain.
In this specimen, selected from a series of brain dissections included in Section I of the Atlas, the brain is photographed from its inferior aspect. The anterior part of the right temporal lobe has been removed so that the middle cerebral artery (6), the anterior choroidal artery (18), the inferior horn of the lateral ventricle (10), and the optic tract (19) life exposed.
