  • Ultra high resolution diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of a post mortem brain is able to demonstrate the full fimbria-fornix tract, the primary output of the hippocampus.

  • A portion of the human perforant pathway, the fiber tract from entorhinal cortex into the dentate gyrus and CA3 subfield of the hippocampus.

Frontiers in data acquisition and analysis
We are currently exploring novel data acquisition and analytic approaches, including structural MRI (automated cortical thickness of high resolution data, automated hippocampal subregion identification), functional MRI (network analysis in routine and high resolution data), and multi-modal data (structure-function MRI, MRI-PET).
