Hello,

Just working my way through the neuroanatomy module and it says that the tectospinal tract turns the head toward sound but I believe the role of this tract is turning the head in response to visual stimuli. The super colliculus of the midbrain receives input from the optic nerves as part of the visual pathway and transmits the information to the contralateral cervical spinal cord via this tract.

Thanks! Great stuff so far.
