The cognitive abilities of parrots are known to be highly developed to the extent of matching those exhibited by crows and primates. However, little is known about the anatomy and structural connectivity of the parrot’s brain. In this work, we propose to use the power of diffusion MRI along with the strong gradients of a unique 17.2T preclinical MRI system to deliver a first white matter atlas of the parrot brain.
