Dedicated to the communication of news, science, and information of interest to the brain mapping community, and to sharing and promoting the science of brain mapping.
The purpose and goal of brain mapping is to advance the understanding of the relationship between structure and function in the human brain. Scientists in this field seek to gain knowledge of the physical processes that underlie human sensation, attention awareness and cognition. These results are immediately applicable to surgical intervention, to the design of medical interventions and to the treatment of psychological and psychiatric disorders.
Yoshihito Yagi is exploring sophisticated rednering methods for displaying the results of diffusion tractography. HIs 2005 master's project, Visualizing Fiber Tracts in the Brain
Using Diffusion Tensor Data was the development of FiberKit, a toolset for interactive visualization of these brain connectivity data.
