Visual topography and perceptual learning in the primate visual system

Alternative title:
Predicting topographic organisation of visual structures in primates using diffusion-weighted imaging and tractography
Abstract:

The primate visual system is organised and wired in a topological manner. From the eye well into extrastriate visual cortex, a preserved spatial representation of the vi- sual world is maintained across many levels of processing. Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), together with probabilistic tractography, is a non-invasive technique for map- ping connectivity within the brain. In this thesis I probed the sensitivity and accuracy of DWI and probabilistic tractography by quantifying its capac...
