Brain Connectivity

Short description: Spaghetti is a new interactive tool for human brain tractography segmentation. It supports neuroanatomists and medical doctors in their study of white matter anatomical structures from diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI) data. Unlike previous systems for tractography segmentation, this is a computer-assisted tool in which the user interacts with a summary of the tractography instead of the whole set of streamlines. The summary is generated by clustering the tractography into a desired number of clusters, usually in the order of tens or one hundred.

Alexandre Gramfort is currently assistant professor at Telecom ParisTech. His research interests include mathematical modeling and the computational aspects of brain imaging (MEG, EEG, fMRI, dMRI). He is generally interested in biomedical signal and image processing with the methods of scientific computing, data mining and machine learning.

FBK Scientific Committee. Review of scientific activities.

Bao shows demo of Spaghetti, an interactive tool for tract segmentation of white matter. Committee members: Wolfgang Wahlster, Malik Ghallab, Wilhelm Tochterman, Marco Gori

The objective of the visiting is twofold: the re-engineering of a software tool for fiber tract segmentation, and the preparation of a dataset of deterministic tractography.
