The goal of this study is to investigate the anatomo-functional organization of the hyperdirect pathway between the subthalamic nucleus (STN) and the cortex in humans. We identified motor, limbic and associative areas of the whole cortex. We used DWI from 30 healthy subjects and probabilistic tractography between the STN and 39 cortical areas. The motor part of the hyperdirect pathway was found predominant compare to the limbic and above all the associative parts.
