Note that although the axons misproject ipsilaterally, they still follow the normal optic tract
and arborize into the tectum.
The macular inner retinal thickness measurements are considered to be sensitive for detecting the retinal ganglion cell (RGC) loss caused by an optic tract
lesion, because more than 50% of RGCs are distributed within a diameter of 4.5 mm in the macula .
neuropathy complicating low-dose interferon treatment.
The optic tract
passes through the subcortical area of the limbic system, known for its relation to emotional behavior (Kahle & Frotscher, 2003).
Enviromental hydrocarbons produce degeneration in cat hypothalamus and optic tract
. Science 199:199-200.
The optic lobe neuropils are located within the anterolateral extensions of the brain and are linked to more posterior regions of the protocerebrum via the optic tract
[ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 4, 5 OMITTED].
The defect is due to an inadvertent heat lesion of the dorsolateral aspect of the optic tract
.[6,7,8] Patients perceive the defect as a small shadow or spot.
(11-12) In terms of site location, 40% of HH involve lesions in the occipital lobe, 30% in the parietal lobe, 25% in the temporal lobe, and 5% arising in the optic tract
and lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN).
2-5B), it was about 16.38 mm in length and 8.48 mm in width, It extended dorsally between the caudal pole of cerebral hemisphere rostrally and cerebellum caudally, meanwhile ventrally extended between the optic tract
and cerebral hemispheres rostrally and the cerebral peduncles and pons caudally.
Retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in optic tract
Retrochiasmal optic tract
pathology results in contralateral homonymous hemianopia.
Lesions in anterior part of optic tract
produce incongruous visual field defects.
(b) relocation of 35 kv overhead line including optic tract
Mustari and colleagues have shown that nasotemporal optokinetic nystagmus (OKN) asymmetry and latent nystagmus (LN) in monkeys reared with binocular deprivation are due to defects in nucleus of optic tract
This can be caused by defects in any of the retinal layers, the optic nerve, the chiasm, the optic tract
or the pre-tectal nucleus in the midbrain.
