Fiber

Bundles of axons within the brain, called fibers, can be categorized by their function into:

Association fibers

Projection fibers

Commissural fibers.

Association fibers are bundles of axons within the brain that unite different parts of the same cerebral hemisphere.

The association fibers unite different parts of the same cerebral hemisphere, and are of two kinds: those connecting adjacent gyri, short association fibers; those passing between more distant parts, long association fibers.
