Corpus callosum
Corpus callosum/the corpus callosum consists of about 200 millon axons that interconnect the two hemispheres. The primary function of the corpus callosum is to integrate motor, sensory, and cognitive performances between the cerebral cortex on one side of the brain to the same region on the other side.

The pericallosal artery/arteria pericallosa derived from the anterior cerebral artery provides blood supply of the corpus callosum.
