The principal efferent strands are:
- (1) the motor tract, occupying the genu and anterior two-thirds of the occipital part of the internal capsule, and consisting of
- (2) the corticopontine fibers, ending in the nuclei pontis.
The chief afferent fibers are:
- (1) those of the lemniscus which are not interrupted in the thalamus;
- (2) those of the superior cerebellar peduncle which are not interrupted in the red nucleus and thalamus;
- (3) numerous fibers arising within the thalamus, and passing through its stalks to the different parts of the cortex ;
- (4) optic and acoustic fibers, the former passing to the occipital, the latter to the temporal lobe.
