corticobulbar fibers
Acronym:
The term corticobulbar fibers represents a fiber pathway from the cerebral cortex to the hindbrain. These fibers, the corticospinal tract and the corticopontine fibers, make up the longitudinal pontine fibers of the basal pons. They are not readily distinguished in myelin-stained cross-sections ( Carpenter-1983 ).

Also known as: corticobulbar tract, corticonuclear fibers, corticonuclear projections
