Corticofugal fibers from the cerebral hemisphere project onto subcortical structures, including the basal nuclei, diencephalon, brain stem, cerebellum, and spinal cord. The major subcortical fiber tracts leaving the cerebrum are the corticospinal, corticonuclear, corticopontine, corticomesencephalic, and the fornix.
