The hippocampus (HC) is one of the core regions in the limbic system. The function of HC was found to be related to some deficits in some psychological disorders. A current issue on HC is, however, the lack of the evidence to map appropriately between valid structure connectivity and the functional connectivity. In this study, Q-Ball Imaging (QBI) tractography technique was employed to provide advanced information in structural connectivity. On the other hand, resting-state functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (rfMRI) brought the information of functional connectivity of HC. The combined information facilitates to understand the mechanism of HC clearly.
