Meyer loop

Last revised by Dr Francis Deng on 03 Jun 2020

The Meyer loop is part of the inferior optic radiation that sweeps back on itself into the temporal lobe, just lateral to the temporal horn of the lateral ventricle. It can be injured in temporal lobectomy, resulting in a superolateral field cut, the so called pie-in-the-sky field cut.
