The posterior commissure of the brain is a rounded bundle of white nerve fibers that crosses the midline immediately dorsal to the cerebral aqueduct, where the aqueduct becomes continuous with the third ventricle. The precise functions served by the various fibers that cross in the posterior commissure are not well understood.
