Abstract: I will present the general principle and application of dynamic tractography, a technique to animate rapid neural propagations and network dynamics along MRI-defined, 3D white matter tracts across brain regions. Intracranial EEG measures allow us to estimate the propagation velocity, whereas diffusion-weighted imaging tractography localizes the anatomical pathways supporting given neural propagations. In our recent studies, we visualized interictal spike propagation from the epileptogenic zone and effective connectivity across language areas. We currently plan to generate the whole-brain level dynamic tractography atlases showing the pathological and physiological network dynamics common across the population.
