MODULE 2 - SECTION 3 - VENTRAL and SAGITTAL VIEWS of the BRAINSTEM

 

     While the dorsal surface of the brainstem is normally hidden from view by overlying structures (cerebral hemispheres, cerebellum) the ventral (or basal) surface of the brainstem is exposed in views of the whole brain, like this one.
     This is a good point to pause and look atsome excellent views taken from The Digital Anatomist:
         
 Diganat_1f - view of gross brain, very similar to this drawing of one
          Diganat_5c - ventral view of a dissected brain
          Diganat_5e - oblique view of a dissected brain
          Diganat_5j - best shot of all - don't miss it!
