Purpose Other than a single case report, no diffusion tensor tractography (DTT) studies of the precommissural fornix in the human brain have been conducted. In the current study, we attempted to visualize the precommissural fornix in the human brain using DTT. Materials and Methods We recruited 36 healthy volunteers for this study. Diffusion tensor images were scanned using a 1.5-T scanner, and the precommissural fornix was analyzed using Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of the Brain… Expand
The differences of the precommissural and postcommissural fornix in the hippocampal location: a diffusion tensor tractography study
TLDR
The reconstructed precommissural fornix and postcommissur fornx were connected to the cornu ammonis 1(CA1) of the hippocampus, and the precommissionural forNix was located more laterally to the postcomissural for nix in the CA1. Expand
Neural connectivity of the anterior body of the fornix in the human brain: Diffusion tensor imaging study
TLDR
The anterior body of the fornix showed high connectivity with the anterior commissure and hypothalamus, and brain areas relevant to cholinergic nuclei (the septal forebrain region and brainstem) and memory function (the medial temporal lobe). Expand
The status of the precommissural and postcommissural fornix in normal ageing and mild cognitive impairment: An MRI tractography study
TLDR
Reconstruction of the fornix contains two rostral divisions that provide novel evidence for a role of postcommissural fibres, which connect structures of the extended hippocampal network, in episodic memory function. Expand
Diffusion tensor tractography for the dorsal spinocerebellar tract in the human brain
TLDR
Using diffusion tensor tractography, it is found that all dorsal SCTs terminated in the ipsilateral cerebellum; in contrast, in 25 (48%) of 52 hemispheres, the dorsal S CT crossed into the contralateral hemisphere via the vermis of the anterior lobe. Expand

TLDR
Separate evaluations of the pre- and postcommissural fornices using 2-tract fornix model would be useful for diagnosis in patients with memory impairment following SAH. Expand
Perspectives on the neural connectivity of the fornix in the human brain
The fornix is involved in the transfer of information on episodic memory as a part of the Papez circuit. Diffusion tensor imaging enables to estimate the neural connectivity of the fornix. TheExpand

  • 2014
TLDR
A relatively safe area for the performance of invasive procedures in the anterior portion of the human brain is identified, which is an area free from any trajectory of five neural tracts. Expand
Precommissural and postcommissural fornix microstructure in healthy aging and cognition
TLDR
Novel in vivo neuroimaging evidence is provided for distinct microstructural properties of precommissural and post commissural fibers that are consistent with their anatomy as found in axonal tracer studies, as well as for a contribution of postcommissionural fibers to the learning of spatial configurations.

Awakening Neuropsychiatric Research Into the Stria Medullaris: Development of a Diffusion-Weighted Imaging Tractography Protocol of This Key Limbic Structure
TLDR
Reliable identification and quantification of diffusion metrics of the SM invites further exploration of this key habenula linked structure in neuropsychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, chronic pain and addiction. Expand

Disrupted integrity of the fornix is associated with impaired memory organization in schizophrenia
TLDR
Disrupted integrity of the fornix contributes to impaired memory organization in schizophrenia, and a significant patients-specific correlation was found between increased MD in the left fornIX and lower scores on utilization of semantic organization in the verbal learning task. Expand
Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI)-based White Matter Mapping in Brain Research: A Review
TLDR
While DTI offers a powerful tool to study and visualize white matter, it suffers from inherent artifacts and limitations and provides an efficient tool for comprehensive, noninvasive, functional anatomy mapping of the human brain. Expand
Degeneration of cingulum and fornix in a patient with traumatic brain injury: diffuse tensor tractography study.
TLDR
It is concluded that patients with memory impairment following traumatic brain injury should be evaluated using diffusion Tensor imaging, and follow-up diffusion tensor imaging may be necessary in patients with sustained memory impairment. Expand
Fornix Integrity and Hippocampal Volume in Male Schizophrenic Patients
TLDR
A disruption in fornix integrity in patients with schizophrenia is demonstrated, and patients showed a significant correlation between reduced scores on neuropsychologic measures of declarative-episodic memory and reduced hippocampal volumes. Expand
Quantitative diffusion tensor fiber tracking of age-related changes in the limbic system
TLDR
The quantitative 3D fiber tracking approach shows that the cingulum is resistant to aging while the fornix is not, and differences in correlations were significant for all diffusivity parameters and for NoF, but not for FpV. Expand
The relation between fornix injury and memory impairment in patients with diffuse axonal injury: a diffusion tensor imaging study.
TLDR
It is found that memory impairment in patients with DAI is closely related to neuronal injury of the fornix body among the three fornIX regions that the authors assessed. Expand
Abnormalities of the fornix in mild cognitive impairment are related to episodic memory loss.
TLDR
It is suggested that microstructural alteration of the fornix is a contributor to early episodic memory dysfunction in non-demented individuals. Expand

TLDR
The authors of this article have combined functional MRI and probabilistic tractography to show that higher-level language comprehension is mediated by a ventral pathway, running in an anteroposterior direction within the EmC, which is a fiber bundle located lateral to the external capsule (EC).

TLDR
In two patients with chronic DAI, both had impaired intelligence, as well as attention and memory disorders that restricted their activities of daily living, DTI fiber tractography revealed interruption of the white matter fibers in the corpus collosum and the fornix, while no lesions were found on conventional MRI.
