We examined the 9 healthy right-handed subjects by diffusion tensor MRI (DTI) and fiber tractography (FT). We evaluated the location and somatotopic organization of the corticospinal tract (CSTs) in the cerebral peduncle (CP). Unlike the posterior limb of internal capsule, hand fiber located slightly anteriorly and medially to the foot fiber in the CP.
