Coronal sections of the brain

Now that we have finished learning about the different structures of the cerebrum, we will examine them in the coronal sections. Using the hemisphere that has remained intact, make coronal sections according to the following instructions. After each cut identify the different structures in the anterior and posterior aspects of each section and compare them with the figures.
