Visceral Structures of the Head and Neck - Arranged Alphabetically Organ Location/Description Notes anterior median fissure midline fissure on the anterior surface of the spinal cord and medulla anterior spinal artery courses on the superficial surface of the spinal cord in this fissure apex of cuneus portion of the cuneus seen in an inferior view of the cerebral hemisphere contains part of the visual cortex arachnoid granulations projections of arachnoid mater which pass through the meningeal layer of the dura into the dural venous sinuses; they are most prominent in the superior sagittal sinus CSF returns to the venous circulation by passing from arachnoid granulations into the blood contained within the dural venous sinuses arachnoid mater intermediate one of the three layers of meninges arachnoid mater is a thin membrane which is pressed against the inner surface of the dura mater by cerebrospinal fluid pressure; arachnids are spiders, the space deep to this layer (subarachnoid space) has a spider web-like appearance aryepiglottic fold a fold of mucous membrane within the laryngopharynx that extends from the arytenoid cartilage to the epiglottis aryepiglottic fold covers the aryepiglottic muscle arytenoid cartilage a pyramid-shaped cartilage located on the superior margin of the cricoid lamina of the larynx arytenoid cartilage is connected: above to the epiglottis via aryepiglottic m. and anteriorly to the thyroid cartilage via the vocal ligament; the paired arytenoid cartilages are pulled together (adducted) by the arytenoid mm. (transverse and oblique) body of fornix a group of nerve cell fibers arching beneath the corpus callosum main efferent fiber system of the hippocampal formation brain stem comprised of: midbrain, pons & medulla oblongata contains the nuclei of cranial nerves III-XII choroid plexus vascular membranes that occur within the ventricles choroid plexus produces cerebrospinal fluid corniculate cartilage a small cartilage located on the apex of the arytenoid cartilage of the larynx corniculate cartilage is located at the posterior end of the aryepiglottic fold central canal of spinal cord small opening in the center of the spinal cord continuous with the central canal of the medulla and, through it, with the fourth ventricle of the brain cerebral hemispheres comprised of: cortex featuring gyri, sulci, fissures & lobes; commissures connecting parts; basal ganglia; contains lateral ventricles; termination of the olfactory tract (cranial nerve I) also known as: telencephalon cerebral aqueduct canal connecting the third and fourth also known as: aqueduct of Sylvius

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
