Subject Optic Chiasm, Histology, Bitemporal Hemianopia, Photomicrographs
Description "Compression of the optic chiasm typically gives rise to bitemporal hemianopia due to selective damage to the decussating nasal fibres. It is unclear why nasal fibres are particularly vulnerable to the extent of generating a sharp vertical cut-off in the visual fields. One theory suggests that this is due to the geometry of individual fibres within the chiasm.1 Unfortunately, detailed anatomical information about the precise arrangement and crossing of nerve fibres in the chiasm is limited. This study aimed to clarify the microscopic anatomy of the chiasm, looking particularly at nerve fibre distribution and the location of nerve fibre crossings."
