Hippocampus-Fornix Dissection

We begin this dissection where we left off from the lateral ventricle dissection. The identical dissection is completed on the opposite side of the brain. The next step is to detatch the hindbrain from the forebrain. A section of the fornix, septum pellucidum and corpus callosum has already been removed. Cutting through the temporal poles bilaterally detatches the remaining connections of the hindbrain from the forebrain. Pulling back on the fornix, you can see how the forebrain easily detatches from the hindbrain.
