Exploration of the brain from the medial aspect
Lateral geniculate body and geniculocalcarine tract
Removal of all but the sublenticular part of the internal capsule illustrates the position of the visual radiation (18). A few fibers remain on the surface of the lentiform nucleus.
1 . Cut ends of fibers forming the superior occipitofrontal fasciculus
2 . Branch of lateral striate artery
3 . Occipital part internal capsule (cut ends of fibers of posterior stalk of thalamus)
4 . Globus pallidus
5 . Anterior commissure
6 . Ansa lenticularis (cut across)
7 . Anterior part of anterior commissure
8 . Optic tract
9 . Uncus (hippocampal gyrus)
10 . Corona radiata
11 . Tapetum (cut across)
12 . Choroid plexus lateral ventricle
13 . Fornix (crus) (cut across)
14 . Stria terminalis
15 . Choroidal fissure
16 . Fornix (crus)
17 . Dentate fascia
18 . Optic radiation (geniculocalcarine tract in sublenticular part of internal capsule)
19 . Lateral geniculate body
20 . Hippocampal gyrus
