  Commissural Fibers
           
   
Transverse fibers connect the two cerebral
 
    hemispheres and include the following:  
       
 
Corpus callosum: largest fiber bundle,
 
    connects neocortex  
       
 
Anterior commissure: connects olfactory bulbs
 
    and temporal regions  
       
  Commisure of fornix: connects the hippocampi
