High Definition Fiber Tractographer

This technology, developed by Dr. Walter Schneider and his team at the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh, in collaboration with UPMC is used with Diffusion Tensor Imaging to find functional connectivities in the human brain. Schneider et al. primarily use this technology to consult neurosurgeons following damage or loss of brain fibers. As a student in Dr. Schneider's class, I worked on finding functional connectivity between language (Broca's Area) and motor planning (Premotor Cortex). Read the full report here
