Second-order projection from the lateral line to the torus semicircularis. A series of 22 frontal planes, from posterior to anterior, taken from a 300 micron thick frontal vibratome section. The fibers enter as bundles (first frames) and arborize as they reach their targets. The LT branch arborizes along the torus semicircularis; as this branch reaches its most anterior extent (last frames) a few fibers escape and climb dorsally into the overlying tectum (yellow arrows). Also present in this figure is the PM branch that arborizes just anterior to the oculomotor nucleus. Movie provided by A Ghysen.
