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.[23] The crus cerebri and the tegmentum, also known as the cerebral peduncles, are composed of the corticospinal and corticopontine descending motor tracts.

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 [205].
