Comparing Connections in the Brains of Humans and Other Primates Using Diffusion-Weighted Imaging

Abstract:

The anatomical connections of a brain area constrain the information it receives and the influence it exerts over other regions. A brain area's anatomical connections, therefore, determine its function. The recent advance in neuroimaging methods has led to a concerted effort to understand human brain function and the interactions that occur between human brain regions. Until recently, however, little has been known of the connections of human brain areas. Diffusion-weighted imaging and tracto...
