Albrecht, U., Lametschwandtner, A., Adam, H. 1980. The vascularization of the anuran brain. Rhombencephalon and medulla spinalis. A scanning electron microscopical study of vascular corrosion casts. (Department of Zoology, University of Salzburg, Austria.) — Acta zool. (Stockh.) 61 (4): 239–246.

The vascularization of the rhombencephalon and the medulla spinalis of Bufo bufo (L.) is demonstrated by scanning electron microscopy of vascular corrosion casts. The arterial supply of the rhombencephalon is performed by central arteries. The same is shown in the medulla spinalis. The venous pathways are represented by venae craniales occipitales and by a posterior and bulbar group of the encephaloposthypophysial portal vein, by veins draining into the venae craniales occipitales, by venae spinales ventrales (for the rostral regions of the medulla) and by venae spinales laterales (in the caudal medulla). In the regions examined so far a centrifugal course of the arterial vessels is reported.
