Brain Frontal Section

Saturday, July 4, 2015

There are two frontal or coronal sections of the human brain; the first one exhibits the cortex, with its deep folds, and the cerebrum's inner structures, like the basal ganglia (caudate nucleus, putamen, globus pallidus) and the corpus callosum; the other shows the brain arteries and the regions they supply.
