Cerebral cortical neurons send impulses via the corticopontine
tracts to the pontine basal nuclei in the ventral pons.
projection in the macaque: the distribution of labelled cortical cells after large injections of horseradish peroxidase in the pontine nuclei," The Journal of Comparative Neurology, vol.
The tectum is formed by the superior colliculi which is related to the visual system and the inferior colliculi which are part of the auditory system. The crus cerebri and the tegmentum, also known as the cerebral peduncles, are composed of the corticospinal and corticopontine
descending motor tracts.
 reported that CSCI patients exhibited significantly reduced FA values in corticospinal tract, corticopontine
tract, and superior cerebellum.
Moreover, the presence of long-term plasticity in the mouse sensorimotor cortex induced by passive whisker stimulation at 8 Hz shows that the corticopontine
input may transmit direct or learned signals to the cerebellum .
