In the IIT Human Brain Atlas project we have developed anatomical as well as state-of-the-art diffusion tensor and high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI) templates, probabilistic gray matter labels, and probabilistic connectivity-based white matter labels for the young adult brain. The purpose of this work was two-fold: a) to enhance the white matter connectome of the IIT Human Brain Atlas through an improved tractography strategy, appropriate filtering of streamlines, and use of more precisely defined gray matter labels, and b) to evaluate how representative the new connectome is of young adult participants of the Human Connectome Project.
