Corticospinal tract location in internal capsule of human brain: diffusion tensor tractography and functional MRI study.

We attempted to elucidate the corticospinal tract location at the posterior limb of the internal capsule in the human brain. Ten healthy volunteers were recruited. Probabilistic mapping was performed using the functional MRI activation resulting from a hand motor task as region of interest 1 and the corticospinal tract area of the anterior pons as region of… (More)
