The lenticular fasciculus is a tract connecting the globus pallidus to the Thalamic fasciculus. The thalamic fasciculus (composed of the lenticular fasciculus and ansa lenticularis) runs into the Thalamus. It is sometimes considered synonymous with "field H2 of Forel".

It connects the globus pallidus to the thalamus.
