long association bundles
The term long association bundles refers to a set of fiber tracts in the cerebral white matter that are reasonably easy to dissect but that are not readily distinguished in myelin-stained histological cross-sections. They include the cingulum, the uncinate fasciculus of the forebrain, the superior longitudinal fasciculus, the inferior longitudinal fasciculus, the subcallosal fasciculus, the inferior occipitofrontal fasciculus, and the vertical occipital fasciculus ( Crosby-1962 ).
