There is one such tract on each side of the brain.
|Fibers from the inferior retina (also called "Meyer's loop" or "Archambault's loop")||must pass into the temporal lobe by looping around the inferior horn of the lateral ventricle.||Carry information from the superior part of the visual field||A lesion in the temporal lobe that results in damage to Meyer's loop causes a characteristic loss of vision in a superior quadrant (quadrantanopia.)|
|Fibers from the superior retina||travel straight back to the occipital lobe in the retrolenticular limb of the internal capsule to the visual cortex.||Carry information from the inferior part of the visual field||Taking the shorter path, these fibers are less susceptible to damage.|
