Exploration of the brain from its lateral aspect
Body and tail of caudate nucleus; striate arteries within lentiform nucleus
The radiation of the internal capsule has been cut away more extensively and the posterior part of the superior occipitofrontal bundle removed so that much of the body and tail of the caudate nucleus is visible. The putamen has been partially scraped away to expose various branches of the striate arteries.
1 . Superior occipitofrontal fasciculus
2 . Frontal part internal capsule
3 . Inferior occipitofrontal fasciculus
4 . Striate artery
5 . Middle cerebral artery (cut across in lateral fissure)
6 . Central sulcus (of Rolando)
7 . Superior longitudinal fasciculus
8 . Radiation corpus callosum (cut across)
9 . Caudate nucleus (tail)
10 . Internal capsule (cut across)
11 . Choroid plexus lateral ventricle
12 . External capsule (cut across)
13 . Hippocampal digitations
14 . Medullary substance of temporal lobe
