Abstract

The optic tracts originate from the posterior part of the optic chiasm bilaterally, with a length of about 4–5 cm. The left optic tract and the right one bypass the left and right cerebral peduncles and end at the left and right lateral geniculate bodies (LGBs), respectively, where the neurons are changed accordingly. It is one part of the optic pathway fibers resulting from the rearrangement of visual fibers after the optic chiasm.
