Module 3: Vascular anatomy of the brain


This is the third module in a 3-part series focused on brain anatomy. You will find links to the others at the end of this module.

The cerebrovascular anatomy has an endocranial and exocranial component and is made up of highly specialised structures that assure constant brain perfusion necessary to meet the very high demand for oxygen and glucose by neurons and glial cells.

Gain insights into the intricate network of arteries and veins, understanding their role in nourishing and supporting vital brain functions.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify major vessel and functional areas of perfusion.
  • Describe alterations to physiology following stroke.
