Inferior colliculus

The ovoid, paired, inferior eminence of the laminae of mesencephalic tectum; it receives the lateral lemniscus and projects by way of the brachium of inferior colliculus to the medial geniculate body of the thalamus, and is thus an essential way-station in the central auditory pathway.

Synonym: colliculus inferior, corpus quadrigeminum posterius, inferior nasal colliculus, posterior quadrigeminal body.
