The anterior choroidal artery (Table 1) is responsible for supplying blood to deep structures of the brain including the globus pallidus (basal ganglia), lateral geniculate body (thalamus), posterior limb of the internal capsule and medial temporal lobe.
When deficits occur in the dominant temporal lobe as a result of damage to the middle and posterior cerebral arteries or the anterior choroidal artery, severe communication problems result.
