In this study anatomical imaging and DTI is used to
confirm in vivo the expected demyelination in a novel
myelin basic protein mutant that spontaneously developed
in our colony. Anatomical imaging and T2 relaxometry and
DTI readouts reflect typical changes as also seen in
other demyelination models such as the Shiverer mice.
