Description

The pretectal region forms the dorsal most part of the diencephalon. The main sensory input to the pretectum is visual with axons from a subset of retinal ganglion cells branch off and arborise in arborisation fields in the pretectum on their way to innervate the optic tectum (Robles et al., 2014).
