Is it "cisternum magnum" or "cisterna magna"? Your answer here is very important, as I received critical feedback on my report, and I don't think I'm wrong. If you all are in agreement that I'm right, I'm going in fighting!!

jusr a suggestion, welcome to ignore, but but it would be a mistake to take that stance with QA, it will do you in, in the end. Reason is, you are now a threat to HER job, she is employed just like you and her term could also be correct(depends where one looks). Best to smile and email her a web site and just say "wanted to share, and please do share with us too". See what I mean, no fight, made a point, and another point, if THEY (who pay$$) want it their way, that is the way WE do it, even if wrong.

Here is a site on brain structures, found by google.com and entered brain structures OR you could just key in your terms and research. "smile"

would be plural, regardless, has NOTHING to do SM
and for that matter, cisterna is singular and cisternae
