Anterior Choroidal Artery

The anterior choroidal artery is a blood vessel of the brain which arises from the internal carotid artery, at a point just before this latter blood vessel anastomoses with the circle of Willis. It supplies structures in the base of the brain, such as the globus pallidus, optic chiasm, choroidal plexus, internal capsule, hippocampus, amygdala, and substancia nigra.
