Diffusion MRI properties of the human uncinate fasciculus correlate with the ability to learn visual associations.

Abstract

The uncinate fasciculus (UF) is a cortico-cortico white matter pathway that links the anterior temporal and the orbitofrontal cortex (OFC). In the monkey, transection of the UF causes significant impairments in learning conditional visual-visual associations, while object discrimination remains intact, suggesting an important role for the UF in mediating… (More)
