Project Description

The illustration depicts the contiguity between auditory radiation(AR) (blue), optic radiation (OR) (yellow), and temporopulvinar fibers (red). The article is a fiber dissection study and this type of connection in this small area is described for the first time in the literature. The curve and the spread of auditory radiation, after its origin from the medial geniculate body (MGB), are located medially and superiorly to the lateral geniculate body (LGB), temporopulvinar fibers, and optic radiation. Because of this, in black and white frames, these fibers and this relationship are especially emphasized.
