Lateral Ventricles

The lateral ventricles are cavities that are part of the ventricular system of the brain. They are located in the lower parts of the cerebral hemispheres. They are the largest of the ventricles and each consists of a central part, with anterior, posterior and inferior horns. The lateral ventricles are connected to the third ventricle through the interventricular foramina of Monro.
