The heterogeneous space distribution of Superior Longitudinal Fascicle in human telencephalon. Neuronal imaging and forensic implications

G. S. Dragoi, P. R. Melinte, L. Radu,

Abstract: The diversity of neuronal imaging methods especially after the implementation of DT-MRI offers the possibility to represent in space the fascicles inside the white matter of telencephalon. The understanding of the space heterogeneous distribution of the Superior Longitudinal Fascicle becomes possible after admitting the limitations of macro anatomic dissection as a research tool and the topographic variability of the fascicle’s segments. The authors consider that a good visualization after the macro dissection of the Superior Longitudinal Fascicle is dependent of the processing of cerebral hemispheres by freezing and de-freezing the water inside neuronal tissue. Connections evaluation inside the neuronal system of Superior Longitudinal Fascicle is really useful for understanding symptoms of psychiatric illnesses or cranial encephalon posttraumatic syndrome.
Keywords: Superior Longitudinal Fascicle (SLF), DT-MRI (Diffusion Tensor Magnetic Resonance Imaging); Encephalon processing after Klingler Method, SLF segments.
