Diffusion MRI can recover white matter fibre bundles but it is blind to their directionality. We propose to identify the directionality of white matter fibre bundles by combining diffusion MRI and EEG data. Based on a realistic model of the brain and simulated EEG data, our preliminary results show that our proposed method is able to differentiate between afferent and efferent white matter connections.
