The efferent and afferent pathways of the carp torus longitudinalis were studied by means of degeneration and retrograde HRP methods. Efferent projections were only seen in the most superficial layer of the ipsilateral optic tectum (stratum fibrosum marginale). Afferent pathways to the torus longitudinalis were found to originate mainly in the valvula cerebelli. Degenerating fibers course in the tractus mesencephalocerebellaris posterior within the valvula, and join the tractus… CONTINUE READING
