Exploration of the brain from its superior aspect
Posterior temporal branch of middle cerebral artery in superior temporal sulcus
The superior temporal gyrus and supramarginal gyrus of the inferior parietal lobule have been taken away to reveal the depths of the superior temporal sulcus and the course of the posterior temporal branch of the middle cerebral artery. The cavity of the third ventricle has been opened by cutting away the two lines of choroid plexus along its roof.
