Lateral geniculate body
The geniculo-calcarine tract, also known as the optic radiation, is a collection of axons from relay neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus carrying visual information to the visual cortex (also called striate cortex) along the calcarine fissure. There is one such tract on each side of the brain.
