The common marmoset has received growing interests in neuroscience. The lissencephalic brain of the marmoset grants it experimental advantages for brain mapping and stimulation, but also brings challenges for dissecting white matter tracts, which is poorly depicted in existing marmoset brain atlases. Here, we collected ultra-high-resolution diffusion MRI datasets at 7T and 14T and performed probabilistic tractography and manual segmentation. The marmoset brain demonstrates a complex multi-layer white matter structure with many regions consist of multiple different fiber pathways. With the ultra-high-resolution data, we will provide the first comprehensive map (atlas) for the white matter of the marmoset brain.
