Best Answer

Projection fibers are usually considered as those fibers that connect the cerebral cortex to subcortical structures and vice versa. The stria terminalis connects the amygdala to the hypothalamus - i.e., two subcortical structures. So, on this basis they are not projection fibers. But because they connect subcortical structures they are referred to as 'association fibers'.
