Lametschwandtner, A., Albrecht, U., Adam, H. 1980. The vascularization of the anuran brain. Olfactory bulb and telencephalon. A scanning electron microscopical study of vascular corrosion casts. (Department of Zoology, University of Salzburg, Austria.) — Acta zool. (Stockh.) 61(4): 225–238.
The vascularization of the olfactory bulb and the telencephalon of the anuran brain is studied by means of scanning electron microscopy of vascular corrosion casts.—The olfactory bulb is supplied via a terminal branch of the ramus hemisphaerii medialis ventralis, while the drainage is via the lateral telencephalic vein. The vascular plexus which caps the olfactory bulb shows “basket‐like” vascular formations facing the rostral olfactory bulb. This plexus is supplied via two sources which are a) terminal branches of the ramus hemisphaerii medialis ventralis and b) a branch of the inner carotid artery. — In the telencephalon the vascular pattern of medial and lateral cortex, the striatum, the septum, and the amygdala are described. It is demonstrated that in the cerebral cortex of the anuran brain the centrifugal blood flow is not present in that strictness found in the other parts of the brain. The arterial supply is via the ramus hemisphaerii medialis ventralis and the posterior telencephalic artery (ramus hemisphaerii medialis dorsalis) and their branches as well as by branches of the preoptic artery. The venous drainage of the telencephalon is by the lateral telencephalic vein.
