Anatomy and white matter connections of the precuneus

August 26, 2021

The Precuneus is involved in visuospatial processing and cognition. We reveal the major connections and functions of the precuneus.

A Connectivity Model of the Anatomic Substrates Underlying Ideomotor Apraxia A Meta-Analysis of Functional Neuroimaging Studies

June 15, 2021

A meta-analysis revealing the network constitutents of ideomotor apraxia. We present a connectivity model to explain the determinants of this condition.

Anatomy and White Matter Connections of the Lingual Gyrus and Cuneus

April 21, 2021

The medial occipital lobe, composed of the lingual gyrus and cuneus, is necessary for basic and higher level visual processing. We investigate the connections of the medial occipital lobe.

Anatomy and white matter connections of the superior parietal lobule

March 19, 2021

The superior parietal lobule (SPL) is involved in somatosensory and visuospatial integration. We reveal the cortical constituents and connections of the SPL.

Anatomy and white matter connections of the middle frontal gyrus

March 17, 2021

The Middle Frontal Gyrus (MFG) is involved in attention processing and working memory. We reveal the major connections and functions of the MFG.

A cortical based analysis of ventral premotor area connectivity

March 10, 2021

The Ventral Premotor Area (VPM) is involved in motor control and execution. We reveal the major connections and functions of the VPM.

The Unique Fiber Anatomy of Middle Temporal Gyrus Default Mode Connectivity

February 3, 2021

The middle temporal gyrus (MTG) is understood to play a role in language related tasks. We investigate the cortical connections and components of the MTG.

Parcellation-based modeling of the supplementary premotor area

January 18, 2021

The supplementary motor area (SMA) plays a role in the initiation of internally and externally cued movements. This manuscript investigates the cortical connections of the SMA.

Anatomy and white matter connections of the parahippocampal gyrus

January 4, 2021

The Parahippocampal Gyrus (PHG) is involved in memory encoding and cognition. We reveal the major connections and functions of the PHG.

Parcellation-based anatomic modelling of the default mode network

November 15, 2020

The default mode network (DMN) is an important mediator of passive states of mind. We investigate the cortical areas which constitute the DMN.

A parcellation-based model of the auditory network

September 11, 2020

Many cortical areas co-ordinate human's auditory sense. We present a tractographic model of the brain's primary auditory network

Anatomy and white matter connections of the fusiform gyrus

August 10, 2020

The fusiform gyrus is understood to be involved in the processing of high-order visual information. We characterize its connections by anatomical dissection and fibre tractography.

The cortical organization of language: distilling human connectome insights for supratentorial neurosurgery

July 31, 2020

Connectomic approaches have bolstered surgical understanding of the brains major language networks. This manuscript summarizes and reviews these major advancements.

Parcellation-based modelling of the dorsal premotor area

May 17, 2020

This manuscript investigates the cortical connections of the Dorsal Premotor Area (DPM), a critical region for coordinating hand muscle recruitment for motor tasks such as grasping and lifting.

Anatomy and white matter connections of the Superior Frontal Gyrus

November 21, 2019

By corroborating tractographic mapping with gross anatomic dissection, we characterize fiber tracts of the Superior Frontal Gyrus (SFG) based on their relationships to known neuroanatomic structures.
