A representation of brain morphometry and connectivity obtained from anatomical and diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of N=110 adult human subjects. Colors of the outermost ring map to the regionally-specific colored parcellations. The innermost rings represent average regional volume, surface area, thickness, curvature, and degree of regionally-specific connectedness, respectively. Connections between regions obtained using 30-direction diffusion weighted imaging are weighted by color (reflecting white matter fiber integrity; low=blue; medium=green; high=red) and opacity (reflecting fiber bundle density). Such maps provide a comprehensive picture of the brain’s information processing architecture as viewed using in vivo neuroimaging methods. Courtesy of C. Torgerson, M. Chambers, A. Irimia, and j.
