Knowledge of the electrical properties of brain tissue is key to developing better understanding of whole brain function. In this study, we present the first in vivo images of anisotropic conductivity distribution in the human head, measured at a frequency of ~10 Hz. We used MREIT techniques to encode phase changes caused by transcranial AC current flow (TACS) within the head via two independent electrode pairs. These results were then combined with DTI data to reconstruct full anisotropic conductivity distributions in 5 mm-thick slices of the brains of two participants. Conductivity values recovered in the study were broadly consistent with literature values.
