NIFTI format

     A total of 80 nifti files are available in the download link. Each file records the voxel-base mask converted from the trajectories of fiber bundle. The original tracks has a much high resolution, and the conversion to a voxel mask loses a substantial amount of spatial information. 

TRK format

     A total of 80 TRK files are available in the download link. To view the file, please download DSI Studio ( and the HCP fiber template (a FIB file, link provided in the bottom). In DSI Studio, click on "STEP3 Fiber Tracking" and open the HCP fiber template. In the top menu, open the trk files using [Tracts][Open Tracts...] to visualize the fiber trajectories.

JPG images

     The pictures show views of the fiber pathways from 6 different directions in a higher resolution. The images were created using DSI Studio.

Connectograms in PNG images

     Connectograms of each fiber pathway generated using an AAL-based brain parcellation.
