11 Superior cerebral veins. Vv. superiores cerebri. Arise from the lateral, medial and anterior aspects of the inferior surface of the brain and drain into the superior sagittal sinus.
12 Prefrontal veins. Vv. praefrontales. They arise from the frontal pole and its basal surface. B
13 Frontal veins. Vv. frontales. Veins from the upper third of the frontal lobe extending up to the central sulcus. B
14 Parietal veins. Vv. parietales. Sinus veins from the parietal lobe. B
15 Occipital veins. Vv. occipitales. Sinus veins from the occipital lobe. B
16 Inferior cerebral veins. Vv. inferiores cerebri. Veins located at the base of the brain with openings into the cavernous, petrosal and transverse sinuses.
18 Superficial middle cerebral vein. V. media su-perficialis cerebri. Coming from the lower two-thirds of the hemisphere, it passes to the cavernous sinus via the lateral sulcus of the cerebrum. B
19 Superior anastromotic vein. V. anastomotica superior [[Trolard]]. Thick vein that occasionally anastomoses with the superior sagittal sinus. B
20 Inferior anastomotic vein. V. anastomotica inferior [[Labbe]]. Thick vein that occasionally anastomoses with the transverse sinus. B
21 Deep cerebral veins. Vv. profundae cerebri. Cerebral veins that are usually concealed.
22 Basal vein. V. basalis [[Rosenthal]]. It begins at the anterior perforated substance, then courses along the optic tract and passes around the brainstem dorsally to join the great cerebral vein. C
23 Anterior cerebral veins. Vv. anteriores cerebri. Companion veins of the anterior cerebral artery. C
24 Deep middle cerebral vein. V. media profunda cerebri. It begins at the insula and opens into the basal vein. C
25 Insular veins. Vv. insulares. Origin of the deep middle cerebral vein.
26 Inferior thalamostriate veins. Vv. thalamos-triatae inferiores. Arise from the caudate and lentiform nuclei and the thalamus, penetrate the anterior perforated substance and open into the basal or deep middle cerebral vein. C
27 Vein of olfactory gyrus. V. gyri olfactorii. It comes from the region proximal to and in front of the olfactory trigone. C
28 Inferior ventricular vein. V. ventricularis inferior. Arises from the white matter of the temporal lobe and passes through the choroid fisure at the level of the crus cerebri. C
29 Inferior choroid vein. V. choroidea inferior. It transports blood from the hippocampus, dentate gyrus and choroid plexus into the basal vein. V
30 Peduncular veins. Vv. pedunculares. Veins from the cerebral peduncle. C

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
