corticopontine fibers
Acronym:
The term corticopontine fibers refers to a fiber pathway from the cerebral cortex to the pons. It includes frontopontine fibers, parietopontine fibers, temporopontine fibers and occipitopontine fibers. These and the corticospinal tract and corticobulbar 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: corticopontine tract
