Projections from the anterior PLL synaptic field. (a) The ipsi- and contralateral anterior medial projections (AMi, AMc) course through well-defined symmetrical tracts, the MLF (median longitudinal fascicle), and extend very dense commissural fibers. In contrast, the anterior lateral fibers (ALi, ALc) are but loosely fasciculated (arrows). (b) The AM projection extends through the ocular motor nuclei and overlaps partly with the PM projection but it differs from the latter in being bilateral with commissural connections, and in extending further anteriorly and laterally. (c) The commissural fibers do not invade the contralateral projection but stop sharply at its boundary (arrows)
