The lateral ventricles are the largest of the ventricles, and have a paired, irregular appearance. On each side there are anterior and posterior horns and a central body. The roof of the anterior horns is formed by the corpus callosum and its medial wall by the septum pellucidum. Each lateral wall and the floor is supplied by the head of the caudate nucleus. The body extends rostrally from the interventricular foramina to the splenium of the corpus callosum. The corpus callosum forms the roof of the body portion, and the floor is contributed to by a number of structures, these being from lateral to medial the caudate nucleus, vena terminalis, stria terminalis, thalamus, choroid plexus, and fornix.
The epithalamus consists of the pineal gland and the habenular nuclei, which play a part in the integration of somatic and olfactory information. Each cerebral hemisphere of the telencephalon has a highly convoluted and folded surface covering of gray matter, the cerebral cortex, and inner core of white matter consisting of fiber tracts. Deep with the hemispheres are masses of gray matter, the basal nuclei (also called basal ganglia) and the lateral ventricles. The infoldings of the surface greatly increase the surface area of the cortex; these folds are termed gyri (singular, gyrus), separated from each other by fissures called sulci.
Also in this region is the mesencephalic nucleus of the trigeminal nerve, a collection of unipolar sensory neurons, and the dorsal nucleus of the raphe. The trochlear nucleus lies ventrally in the periaqueductal gray matter and sends efferents to the superior oblique muscle of the eye. Several tracts can be seen in transverse section. The most prominent is the decussation of the cerebellar peduncles. The lateral lemniscus is seen where it enters the inferior colliculus and the medial lemniscus en route to the thalamus.
