Broca’s Area as a Pre articulatory Phonetic Encoder: Gating the Motor Program

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5826965
PMID: 29520225

[…] eighted sequence and a 3D-FLAIR sequence were also acquired for anatomical characterization.HARDI datasets were corrected for movement and eddy-current distortions using FMRIB Software Library (FSL). Diffusion Imaging in Python (Dipy) software was used to estimate fractional anisotropy (FA) and for q-ball residual-bootstrap fiber tracking of language pathways (, ). Tracking was performed using an […]


White Matter Tract Segmentation as Multiple Linear Assignment Problems

[…] volution algorithm (CSD) (Tournier et al., ) with a single shell (b = 1,000). The tractograms were obtained with the Euler Delta Crossing (EuDX) algorithm, see (Garyfallidis et al., ), implemented in DiPy, with 106 seeds. The number of streamlines of the resulting tractograms is approximately 100–140 thousands. […]


Bayesian Tractography Using Geometric Shape Priors

Front Neurosci
PMCID: 5594407
PMID: 28936158
DOI: 10.3389/fnins.2017.00483

[…] ut here we have used only 30 subjects for our experiments. The dMRI images in HCP has an isotropic resolution of 1.25 mm. To estimate a diffusion tensor at each voxel, we use the open source software Dipy (Garyfallidis et al., ). Figure shows one slice of the 3 × 3 diffusion tensors estimated from a randomly selected dMRI image in HCP; a zoom-in of a small part of the image is shown on its right. […]


Mapping White Matter Microstructure in the One Month Human Brain

[…] nih.gov/pub/dist/doc/program_help/3dSkullStrip.html) and diffusion tensors were estimated for each voxel using the robust estimation of tensors by outlier rejection (RESTORE) algorithm as part of the diffusion imaging in python (DIPY) open source software package. As the largest b-value of the acquisition consisted of 1500 s/mm2, all three shells were utilized in fitting the diffusion tensors. Eig […]


Stability metrics for optic radiation tractography: Towards damage prediction after resective surgery

[…] ons. However, unlike DTI, HARDI is not commonly applied within a medical MRI diagnosis. Instead, the DTI data may be improved by applying contextual enhancement (, ), such as the one available in the DIPY framework (http://dipy.org). Additionally, in order to improve the image quality of the diffusion measurements it may be beneficial to apply denoising. This may, for example, be achieved by a rec […]

[…] re converted from the native DICOM to compressed NIfTI‐1 format using the dcm2nii tool (http://www.mccauslandcenter.sc.edu/mricro/mricron/dcm2nii.html). Subsequently, the images were submitted to the DiPy v0.8.0 implementation (Garyfallidis et al., ) of a non‐local means de‐noising algorithm (Coupe et al., ) to boost the signal‐to‐noise ratio. Next, a brain mask of the b0 image was created using t […]
