Exploration of the brain from its basal aspect
Course of anterior cerebral arteries around genu of corpus callosum
The corpus callosum has been cut away to expose its genu. The cingulum and gyrus cinguli have been dissected so that the course of the anterior cerebral arteries may be followed in the longitudinal fissure.
