The visual pathway consists of approx. 1 million nerve fibers on each hay. and we. page. It runs superficially on the underside of the brain from the optic nerve cross (chiasma opticum
) to the outer knee body (corpus geniculatum laterale)
on the underside of the posterior pole of the visual mound (pulvinar thalami).
The nerve fibers in the visual pathway begin in the ganglion cells of the retina and end primarily in the various nerve cell layers of the outer knee body.
