Description The optic tract, which is fully formed by the 13th week of gestation, is the segment of the afferent visual pathway between the chiasm and dLGN. From their origin, the optic tracts diverge in front of the interpeduncular space and wind laterally above the uncus and then around the internal capsule to reach the dLGN (Figs. 1.38, 1.45, and 1.46). Unlike he intracranial optic nerves, the optic tracts are firmly attached to the brain throughout their course by glial cells.
