Representation of the white matter pathways is a hard task, using diffusion MRI and tractography is used to create a tractogram. This virtual reconstruction of the brain connectivity can be used to manually dissect bundle of interest. For neuroanatomists, these connections between different regions of the brain can be insightful to investigate healthy or pathological individual. In the figure, each color represents a well-known pathway.
Red: Corpus Callosum
Blue: Corticospinal Tract
Orange: Superior Longitudinal Fasciculus
Pink: Uncinate Fasciculus
Cyan: Inferior + Middle Cerebellar Peduncle
Green: Inferior Longitudinal Fasciculus
