Lab 2 - Internal Organization of the Brain

Internal Capsule - Coronal Sections

The three coronal sections below illustrate parts of the internal capsule. Recall that the Genu can be easily identified because it is the part of the internal capsule that is closest to the midline. We will learn about the structures around the internal capsule later in this lab. For now, try to recognize its different parts.

View and identify the structures in the illustration.
