The aim of this work was to use probabilistic diffusion tractography to examine the organization of the human insular cortex based on the similarities of its remote projections. Forty right-handed healthy subjects (33.8 ± 12.7 years old) with no history of neurological injury were included in the study. After the spatial standardization of diffusion tensor images, insular cortical masks were delineated based on the Harvard–Oxford Cortical Atlas and were used to initiate fibertracking.

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. Expand
The human insula: Architectonic organization and postmortem MRI registration
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to re-examine the microanatomical organization of the insula and relate cytoarchitectonic maps to major sulcal/gyral patterns by registration to high-resolution MR images of the same brains. Expand
Tractography-based parcellation does not provide strong evidence of anatomical organisation within the thalamus
TLDR
It is demonstrated that internal structure in diffusion anisotropy is not necessary for a plausible parcellation to be obtained, by spatially permuting diffusion parameters within the thalami and repeating the parcellations. Expand
On the interpretation of tractography-based parcellations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that internal structure in diffusion anisotropy is not necessary for a plausible parcellation to be obtained, by spatially permuting diffusion parameters within the thalami and repeating the parcellations. Expand
Mapping changes of in vivo connectivity patterns in the human mediodorsal thalamus: correlations with higher cognitive and executive functions
TLDR
The results show that the connectivity-based parcellation technique applied to the mediodorsal thalamic nucleus delivers a single subject level descriptor of connectional topography; furthermore, a possible weak interaction between executive performance and the size of theThalamic area from which pathways converge to the lateral prefrontal cortex is revealed.

A surface‐based technique for mapping homotopic interhemispheric connectivity: Development, characterization, and clinical application
TLDR
SHIC presents as a sensitive and reliable measure of cortical homotopy that may prove useful as a biomarker in neurologic disease and is shown to be reliable both within and across subjects. Expand
Connectivity‐based parcellation: Critique and implications
TLDR
This broad overview critically discusses the current state as well as the commonalities and idiosyncrasies of the main CBP methods to target frequent concerns faced by novices and veterans to provide a reference for the investigation and review of CBP studies. Expand
Insular cortex: structural and functional neuroanatomy.
TLDR
The approximate location and extent of the insula is illustrated on sagittal, coronal, and axial MRI scans and the locations and extents of the seven cytoarchitectonic subdivisions identified are approximated on a simplified sagittal drawing. Expand
The Corticocortical Structural Connectivity of the Human Insula
TLDR
This work reveals for the first time in humans a clear structural connectivity between the insula and the cingulate, parahippocampal, supramarginal and angular gyri as well as the precuneus and occipital regions. Expand
Node Detection Using High-Dimensional Fuzzy Parcellation Applied to the Insular Cortex
TLDR
A relatively simple “one-step” border detection and ROI estimation procedure employing the fuzzy c-mean clustering algorithm that revealed a complex pattern of functional connectivity where the two previously detected insular clusters are subdivided into several other networks, some of which are not commonly associated with the insular cortex.

Probabilistic tractography recovers a rostrocaudal trajectory of connectivity variability in the human insular cortex
TLDR
In vivo probabilistic white‐matter tractography and Laplacian eigenmaps used to study the variation of connectivity patterns across insular territories in humans suggested that regional transitions among tractography patterns in the insula occur more gradually than in other brain regions. Expand
Connectivity-based parcellation of human cortex using diffusion MRI: Establishing reproducibility, validity and observer independence in BA 44/45 and SMA/pre-SMA
TLDR
It is concluded that diffusion tractography represents a useful and objective tool for parcellation of the human cortex into functional regions, enabling studies into individual functional anatomy even when there are no specific activation paradigms available. Expand
Changes in connectivity profiles define functionally distinct regions in human medial frontal cortex.
TLDR
A strong relationship between structure and function in medial frontal cortex is demonstrated and a strategy for testing such correspondences elsewhere in the brain is offered. Expand
Group analyses of connectivity-based cortical parcellation using repeated k-means clustering
TLDR
This study applies k-means clustering a thousand times to the same DWI dataset collected in 10 individuals to segment two brain regions: the SMA-preSMA on the medial wall, and the insula, and proposes a method to employ the variability of clustering solutions to assess the reliability with which certain voxels can be attributed to a particular cluster.

Non-invasive mapping of connections between human thalamus and cortex using diffusion imaging
TLDR
The results provide the first quantitative demonstration of reliable inference of anatomical connectivity between human gray matter structures using diffusion data and the first connectivity-based segmentation of gray matter. Expand
Three Systems of Insular Functional Connectivity Identified with Cluster Analysis
TLDR
It is found that dorsal and ventral anterior insula responded selectively to disgusting images, while posterior insula did not, and clustering of connectivity patterns can be used to subdivide cerebral cortex into anatomically and functionally meaningful subregions. Expand
Functional connectivity of the insula in the resting brain
TLDR
The authors' findings document two major complementary networks involving the ventral-anterior and dorsal-posterior insula: one network links the anterior insula to the middle and inferior temporal cortex and anterior cingulate cortex, and is primarily related to limbic regions which play a role in emotional aspects, and support the use of resting state functional analysis to investigate connectivity in the living human brain.

The Insula of Reil Revisited: Multiarchitectonic Organization in Macaque Monkeys
TLDR
The present study aimed at reinvestigating the architectonic organization of the monkey's insula using multiple immunohistochemical stainings (parvalbumin, PV; nonphosphorylated neurofilament protein, with SMI-32; acetylcholinesterase, AChE) in addition to Nissl and myelin to reveal changes in density and laminar distributions of the neurochemical markers.

This pilot study showed that automated DTI-based parcellation of SN subregions may provide a useful tool for in-vivo identification of SNc and SNr and might therefore assist to detect changes that occur in patients with PD. Expand
Asymmetry of subinsular anisotropy by in vivo diffusion tensor imaging
TLDR
