With the further growth of the hemisphere the corpus striatum loses its primitive relations to the descending cornu.
The thalamus and corpus striatum are called together, the great inferior ganglion of the brain.
This is about the same amount as is found in the corpus striatum of the human brain.
The optic thalamus is indicated in the engraving, but the corpus striatum, being more exterior and anterior, does not appear.
The anterior cornu has the anterior end of the corpus striatum projecting into it.
