DTI tractography of theWernicke and Broca connectivity in right and left hander

We use DT-MRI and statistical fibre tracking in order to quantify the left-right asymmetry of connectivity between the posterior part of the superior temporal gyrus (Wernicke) and the homolateral pars opercularis of the frontal inferior gyrus (Broca) in 12 healthy subjects. Our results show that there is a left-right brain asymmetry in terms of connectivity. A right handed population has denser association pathways left which seems to be fairly constant over that population (small variance). The left handed population seems to be more heterogeneous in terms of lateralisation though if lateralized it will be frequently on the right.
