Note that the internal capsule has an anterior limb, a genu, and a posterior limb. Note also that the corpus callosum is sectioned through the genu and splenium. qxd 7/10/08 7:25 AM Page 22 Aptara Inc. 22 CHAPTER 3 Lateral ventricle Corpus callosum (genu) Caudate nucleus Septum pellucidum and fornix Internal capsule (anterior limb) Putamen Globus pallidus Insula External capsule Velum interpositum Internal capsule (genu) Internal capsule (posterior limb) Thalamus and third ventricle Trigone (of lateral ventricle) Corpus callosum (splenium) Optic radiations Superior sagittal sinus Visual cortex ● Figure 3-9 Axial magnetic resonance imaging section at the level of the internal capsule and basal nuclei (ganglia).

It secretes the CSF. Tight junctions of the choroid plexus cells form the blood–CSF barrier. B. VENTRICLES CONTAIN CSF AND CHOROID PLEXUS 1. The two lateral ventricles communicate with the third ventricle through the interventricular foramina (of Monro). 2. The third ventricle is located between the medial walls of the diencephalon. It communicates with the fourth ventricle through the cerebral aqueduct. 3. The cerebral aqueduct (of Sylvius) connects the third and fourth ventricles. It has no choroid plexus.

ANENCEPHALY (MEROANENCEPHALY) results from failure of the anterior neuropore to close. As a result, the brain does not develop. The frequency of this condition is 1:1,000. B. SPINA BIFIDA results from failure of the posterior neuropore to form. The defect usually occurs in the sacrolumbar region. The frequency of spina bifida occulta is 10%.
