Fig. 173. Showing the Development of the Corpus Striatum in the floor and outer wall of the Cerebral Vesicle

The Corpus Striatum. — As soon as the cerebral vesicle grows it, the corpus striatum appears as a thickening in its wall at the outer side of the foramen of Monro (Fig. 173). With the isterior development of the vesicle it comes to lie in the venieular floor, from the foramen of Monro to its posterior extremity.

The anterior extremity of the corpus striatum is continuous ith the olfactory lobe (Fig. 173). Hence in the adult brain the anterior end of the corpus striatum appears at the base of the brain in the anterior perforated space, a lamina of grey matter derived from the olfactory lobe (Fig. 18, p. 22). As the cerebral side grows over the optic thalamus (Fig. 173) the corpus striatum comes to be applied to that body. The posterior extremity of the cerebral vesicle, in which the tail of the caudate nucleus is situated (Fig. 173), develops downwards, behind and below the optic thalamus, forming the descending horn of the lateral ventricle. Hence the occurrence of the tail of the caudate nucleus and the amygdaloid nucleus on the roof of the descending horn, both being intrinsic parts of the corpus striatum. The corpus striatum is imperfectly separated, during the 4th and 5th months of foetal life, into two parts, the caudate and lenticular nuclei, by the downgrowth, from the cerebral cortex of the fibres which form the internal capsule, crusta, and pyramidal tracts.
