This study demonstrates normal white matter structures of the supratentorial system revealed by diffusion tensor imaging. Their anatomic connections and functional significance are discussed in the context of the lesion-induced deficits reported in the literature, which may not fully represent the lesion-induced effects on the white matter function and may not be entirely specific to the tract discussed. Nevertheless, understanding the most common effects of lesions on the functional connectivity provides a framework that we can use in advanced neuroimaging studies, like diffusion tensor imaging, functional magnetic resonance imaging, and positron emission tomography, and in our daily clinical practice.
