Human brain mapping of the electrical conductivity can facilitate the understanding of brain function. The low-frequency conductivity distribution of biological tissue exhibit the anisotropic tissue property and can be expressed as tensor. Considering the most physiological events occurs in frequency below 1 kHz, we developed a new conductivity tensor imaging method which can be implemented in conventional clinical MRI scanner without using any current injections for anisotropic conductivity measurement.
