In this research, we have calculated the correlation coefficient between the DTI parameter of uncinate fasciculus, fornix and WMS-R score. Correlations between DTI measures and memory performance suggest the relationships between the UF, fornix and function in memory tasks lateralization. Our finding matches previous reports on the correlation between FA in the left or L1 in the right UF and performance on visual memory.
