Thalamocortical Connectivity Predicts Level of Awarness in Disorders of Consciousness

Zheng, Z., Reggente, N., Lutkenhoff, E., Owen, A., Monti, M. Amy Zheng presented this poster at SfN in Washington, D.C (2014) SfN 2014 Poster Brief: In this study we used probabilist tractography on diffusion tensor imaging data to look at the whole brain’s anatomical connectivity index with the Left and Right Thalamus for patients with […]

Memory recall for high value items correlates with individual differences in white matter pathways associated with reward processing and fronto-temporal communication

Publication: Coming Soon SfN 2013 Poster: Reggente_SfN_2013 Summary: We used DTI to explore anatomical accounts for individual differences in the behavioral effects of value-directed remembering. We examined connectivity within the mesolimbic system by using probabilistic tractography algorithms to compute anatomical connectivity between each subject’s nucleus accumbens(NAcc) and ventral tegmental area(VTA). We also extracted mean fractional anisotropy […]
