Tractography validation and structural connectivity
Description: The project aims at the validation of the brain structural connectivity estimated from diffusion MRI tractography. Tractohraphy is an algorithmic method that estimates white matter pathways using the axon orientation sensitive measurements of diffusion MRI. Although many successful applications, tractography suffers from several limitations and biases. The goal of the project is to better characterize those limitations and optimize the reconstruction parameters for a more accurate and reproducible structural connectivity estimation.
