3D animation of MTL

August 15, 2007

Here is a neat little animation for you to see It shows a nice view of medial temporal lobe regions, consisting of temporopolar cortex (red), perirhinal cortex (yellow), entorhinal cortex (blue), amygdala (cyan), hippocampus (green) and parahippocampal cortex (purple).

The animation was made by my colleague at DRCMR; Arnold Skimminge, based on ROI drawings I made on one subject in my ageing study. Basically, what we use these for are to study the effects of age on changes in volume, BOLD fMRI responses, and perfusion. More on that later. I’m busy writing my thesis … only 2½ weeks left, and still plenty to do…
