Abstract

Human brain consists of grey and white matter. Grey matter largely forms the<br/>outer layer of the brain, and is responsible for decision making and functioning<br/>of the human body. Complementary, the white matter (WM) contains the<br/>communication pathways between the grey matter areas. Diffusion-weighted<br/>magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) is an imaging modality allowing to model<br/>the brain’s white matter structures by making the MRI acquisition sensitive to<br/>diffusion processes. When brain structure is altered due to pathology, it can be<br/>assessed and quantified by analysing dMRI data...
