Parietal lobe visual areas project to several subcortical targets. Three of the most prominent of these are to the basal ganglia, superior colliculus, and pontine nuclei. All three are probably involved in some aspect of visually guided movement. One of the largest systems of fiber connections in the human brain arises in the cerebral cortex, and relays to the cerebellum via the pontine nuclei. Pontocerebellar axons terminate within the cerebellar cortex as mossy fibers. Cells in the cerebral… CONTINUE READING
