The temporal pole (TP) is an association cortex capable of multisensory integration and participates in various high-order cognitive functions. However, an accepted parcellation of the human TP and its connectivity patterns have not yet been well established. Here, we sought to present a scheme for the parcellation of human TP based on anatomical connectivity and to reveal its subregional connectivity patterns. Three distinct subregions with characteristic fiber pathways were identified…

Tractography-based Parcellation of the Human Middle Temporal Gyrus
TLDR
Interestingly, the functional connectivity with Brodmann's Area (BA) 40, BA 44, and BA 45 gradually increased from the anterior to the posterior MTG, a finding which indicated functional topographical organization as well as implying that language processing is functionally segregated in the MTG.
Functional organization of the fusiform gyrus revealed with connectivity profiles
TLDR
Two organizational functional transitions of the ventral temporal gyrus, a posterior/anterior direction of visual/semantic processing, and a media/lateral direction of high‐level visual processing are supported.
Fine-Grained Topography and Modularity of the Macaque Frontal Pole Cortex Revealed by Anatomical Connectivity Profiles
TLDR
A tractography-based parcellation scheme was formed that applied a machine learning algorithm to divide the macaque FPC into eight subareas using high-resolution diffusion magnetic resonance imaging with the 9.4T Bruker system and revealed their subregional connections, and found that the dorsolateral FPC was mainly connected to regions of the default-mode network.
Finding Cortical Subregions Regarding the Dorsal Language Pathway Based on the Structural Connectivity
TLDR
The IFJ in the PFC, which has rarely been emphasized as a language-related subregion, also had the strongest connectivity with the previously known language- related subregions among the P FC; consequently, it is proposed that these specific regions are interconnected via the SLF and AF within the Pfc, IPC, and temporal cortex as language-based circuitry.
Structural connectivity of the human anterior temporal lobe: A diffusion magnetic resonance imaging study
TLDR
The hypothesis that distinct regions within the ATLs have anatomical connections to different cognitive networks is supported by the findings of diffusion tensor imaging and probabilistic tractography, which support the hypothesis that functional segregation of information in the ATL's is reflected by distinct patterns of structural connectivity to regions outside the ATL.
Convergent functional architecture of the superior parietal lobule unraveled with multimodal neuroimaging approaches
TLDR
A convergent functional architecture of the superior parietal lobule is revealed that can be revealed based on different types of connectivity and is reflected by different functions and interactions.
Anatomical connectivity profile development constrains medial-lateral topography in the dorsal prefrontal cortex
TLDR
Differences in the developmental trends of the dmPFC and dlPFC were uncovered, revealing a tendency toward a medial-lateral prefrontal division that can provide a fuller understanding of the potential underlying genetic underpinnings as well as of the possible effects on developmental behavior.
Functional connectivity‐based parcellation of the human sensorimotor cortex
TLDR
Interestingly, the resting‐state parcellation map demonstrated higher correspondence to the task‐based divisions after individuals performed the motor task, and higher functional correlations between the centrally located hand region and the other two regions, than between the foot and tongue.
Parcellation of the human sensorimotor cortex: a resting-state fMRI study
TLDR
It is shown through direct comparison that a similar functional map can be obtained, independently of a task, by performing a connectivity-based parcellation of the sensorimotor cortex based on resting-state fMRI.
Selective Functional Disconnection of the Dorsal Subregion of the Temporal Pole in Schizophrenia
TLDR
A selective (the right TPd) functional disconnection of TP subregions in schizophrenia is suggested, unrelated to illness severity, duration of illness and antipsychotic medication dosage.

Connectivity-Based Parcellation of the Human Orbitofrontal Cortex
TLDR
Resting-state fMRI is used in combination with unsupervised clustering techniques to investigate whether OFC subdivisions can be revealed based on their functional connectivity profiles with other brain regions and identified seven OFC clusters connected to other cortical regions but also subcortical areas in the striatum and the midbrain.
Connectivity-based structural and functional parcellation of the human cortex using diffusion imaging and tractography
TLDR
The use of in vivo diffusion imaging and white matter tractography as a non-invasive method for the structural and functional parcellation of the human cerebral cortex is explored, discussing the strengths and limitations of the current approaches.
Connectivity-based subdivisions of the human right "temporoparietal junction area": evidence for different areas participating in different cortical networks.
TLDR
The results indicate that TPJ can be subdivided into subregions on the basis of its structural and functional connectivity, and is a unitary area with a heterogeneous functional connectivity profile or a conglomerate of regions with distinctive connectivity.
The Human Parahippocampal Region: I. Temporal Pole Cytoarchitectonic and MRI Correlation
TLDR
The findings suggest that the human TP is a heterogeneous region formed exclusively by TPC for about 7 mm of the temporal tip, and that becomes progressively restricted to the medial and ventral sides of the TP.
Anatomical and Functional Connectivity of Cytoarchitectonic Areas within the Human Parietal Operculum
TLDR
Differences between anatomical and functional connectivity as well as between species, however, highlight the need for an integrative view on connectivity, including comparison and cross-validation of results from different approaches.
Rethinking the role of the middle longitudinal fascicle in language and auditory pathways.
TLDR
This study combines high-angular-resolution fiber tractography and fiber microdissection techniques to determine the trajectory, cortical connectivity, and a quantitative analysis of the middle longitudinal fascicle (MdLF), and hypothesize that, rather than a language-related tract, the MdLF may contribute to the dorsal "where" pathway of the auditory system.

TLDR
The rightward lateralization of the pathway between the TPJ and insula supports previous findings on the roles of these regions in stimulus-driven attention, sensory awareness, interoception and pain.
