The anterior cerebral arteries are joined by the anterior communicating shortly after their division from the internal carotid. They course around the front of the corpus callosum to supply most of the medial surfaces of the hemispheres.

Proximal deep branches of the anterior cerebral supply parts of the optic chiasm, basal ganglia, hypothalamus and anterior limb of the internal capsule. The distribution extends posteriorly to the parietooccipital fissure demarcating the beginning of the occipital lobe.

The middle cerebral artery, the larger terminal branch of the internal carotid, passes into the lateral sulcus, courses up over the insula, turns back sharply in the upper part of the circular sulcus and finally reaches the surface of the cortex through the lateral fissure. It supplies proximal lenticulostriate branches through the anterior perforated substance into the basal ganglia and internal capsule.
