We have developed the first microstructural atlas that includes both DT-MRI and advanced microstructural indices. The atlas includes population means and standard deviations of multi-variate data for every voxel in MNI space, and for all major association, projection and commissural pathways which can be described and differentiated on the basis of their microstructural properties, and is meant to serve as a reference for all the experimenters interested in microstructural imaging.
