The white matter fibers in our brain are essential for conveying information across brain regions. Using diffusion imaging methods we can examine the fibers that course through our brain. In this video we take a closer look and highlight a number of tracts.


This movie shows a colorful 3D rendering of a non human primate brain. Data from the Kalin lab, Department of Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin - Madison. 


This movie shows a colorful 3D rendering of some of the fiber tracts in my brain. It shows the Corpus Callosum (CC), overlaid on a T1 image. Data from the Waisman Laboratory for Brain Imaging and Behavior at University of Wisconsin.


In this video you can see a full brain tractography rendering in 3D. You can spot areas like the uncinate fasciculus, arcuate fasciculus, cerebral peduncle and cerebro-spinal tract. The tracts are overlaid on a T1 image. Data from the Waisman Laboratory for Brain Imaging and Behavior at University of Wisconsin.


This movie shows a three-dimensional rendering of the uncinate fasciculus overlaid on a fractional anisotropy (FA) image for a single subject. The colored planes show the ROI's that were used for the delineation of the left and right uncinate fasciculus. This method was used in a University of Wisconsin study researching the structural connectivity of this major frontolimbic pathway in generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). More info here.
