The mammillothalamic tract (MTT) is a part of the Papez circuit and connects the mammillary body and anterior thalamus. No studies of the MTT have been performed using diffusion tensor tractography (DTT). In the current study, we attempted to identify the MTT in the human brain using DTT. We recruited 25 healthy volunteers for this study. Diffusion tensor images (DTIs) were scanned using 1.5-T, and the MTT was obtained using FMRIB software. Values of fractional anisotropy (FA), mean diffusicity… CONTINUE READING
