C. Subfornical organ • is located on the inferior surface of the fornix at the level of the interventricular foramen of Monro. • contains neurons that project to the supraoptic nuclei and the organum vasculosum. • is a central receptor site for angiotensin II. D. Subcommissural organ • is located below the posterior commissure at the junction of the third ventricle and the cerebral aqueduct. • is composed of specialized ependymal cells, glial elements, and a capillary bed containing nonfenestrated endothelial cells.

Central artery of the retina • is a branch of the ophthalmic artery. • provides the only blood supply to the inner five layers of the retina. • is an end artery; its occlusion results in blindness. 3. Posterior communicating artery (see Figures 3-2 and 3-6) • arises from the carotid siphon and joins the posterior cerebral artery. Figure 3-5.
