Rostrum of corpus callosum
|Rostrum of corpus callosum|
Mesal aspect of a brain sectioned in the median sagittal plane. (Rostrum labeled at center left.)
|Latin||rostrum corporis callosi|
|Anatomical terms of neuroanatomy|
The anterior end of the corpus callosum is named the genu, and is bent downward and backward in front of the septum pellucidum; diminishing rapidly in thickness, it is prolonged backward under the name of the rostrum, and is connected below with the lamina terminalis, which stretches from the interventricular foramen to the recess at the base of the optic stalk.
The anterior cerebral arteries are in contact with the under surface of the rostrum; they then arch over the front of the genu, and are carried backward above the body of the corpus callosum.
the arrow that points the hypophysis is wrong. It points to the anterior commissure. The pituitary is not present at this picture.
