Extensive Cerebral White Matter Dissection

Surgical Correlation


Extensive Cerebral White Matter Dissection. This dissection demonstrates the hippocampus, arcuate fasciculus, and superior longitudinal fasciculus. The fornix can be seen splitting into its pre- and post-commissural divisions.  The pre-commissural fornix descends anterior to the anterior commissure and terminates mainly in the septal nucleus, whereas the post-commissural fornix descends posterior to the anterior commissure and terminates largely in the mammillary body,  (Image courtesy of M Nunez)
