Along the inferior border of the falx cerebri is the inferior longitudinal sinus, which has more the character of a vein than of a sinus. On reaching the tentorium this sinus is joined by the veins of Galen, which were cut across in removing the brain; and the blood from.these two sources flows to the torcular along the straight sinus in the angle of union of the falx cerebri with the tentorium. In the falx cerehelli will be found the occipital sinus, also leading into the torcular Herophili. The lateral sinuses are to be laid open in their whole course down to the jugular foramen; and there the commencement of the jugular vein is to be seen with the three parts of the eighth nerve internal to it, and the inferior petrosal sinus running along the occipital border of the petrous bone and separating the glosso-pharyngeal nerve from the pneumogastric and spinal accessory as it falls into the jugular vein.
