The occipitofrontal fasciculus passes backward from the frontal lobe, along the lateral border of the caudate nucleus, and on the medial aspect of the corona radiata; its fibers radiate in a fan-like manner and pass into the occipital and temporal lobes lateral to the posterior and inferior cornua.

Some sources distinguish between a "Inferior occipitofrontal fasciculus" and "superior occipitofrontal fasciculus."
