Unformatted text preview: Lab 4: Coronal view Sheep Brain Dissection: Again, looking at internal structures of the brain, we will make 5 coronal cuts on your group’s sheep brain. These coronal cuts are labeled C, E, G, H, and I on page 28 of your lab manual.- C : Caudal to the olfactory bulbs- E : Through the optic chiasm- G : Through the mammillary body- H : Through the cerebral peduncle- I : Through the rostral pons Identification: Coronal Cut C (p. 31 of lab manual and slide 20 of http://academic.uofs.edu... website) Corpus Callosum (lab 2) Putamen (lab 3) Lateral Olfactory Tract (lab 1) Caudate Nucleus (lab 3) Lateral Ventricle (lab 2) Internal Capsule - series of axons that relay information, mostly sensory from the thalamus to the cerebral cortex.
