tract of the postoptic commissure
Tract that extends from the postoptic commissure through a curved trajectory in the diencephalon into the ventral midbrain
In the anterior diencephalon the TOP is a single tract but caudally the axons of the TPOC diverge and tend to grow in distinct parallel bundles. The more dorsal bundles extend in the dorsolateral tegmentum, the ventral bundles of the TPOC merge into the DLF in the hindbrain.
