The white matter of the human brain is mostly composed of myelinated axonal bundles connecting different brain regions. Within these tracts, U-shape fibres are short association connections that link adjacent gyri. Although they were first described by Meynert in the 19th century most of the mapping in the human brain has remained incomplete (Catani et al., 2012).
