Poster 47: Laura Ziegler – Imaging Thinly Myelinated White Matter Pathways

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Michael Pritz

To better understand the evolution of white matter pathways in the brain, we need to study the pathways in crocodilians. To study the pathways in crocodilians, we need to visualize thinly myelinated white matter pathways. We used a technique called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and tractography to visualize the white matter pathways in a crocodilian. This project demonstrates how DTI can be used to visualize thinly myelinated white matter pathways in the crocodilian brain.
