Using probabilistic diffusion tractography (Behrens et al. MRM 2003) we were able to segment the human thalamus on the basis of its connectivity to the cortex (Behrens et al. Nat Neurosci 2003). We propose that the resulting subdivisions correspond to groups of nuclei and have used this approach to produce a probabilistic atlas of the human thalamus based on its cortical connectivity (Johansen-Berg et al. Cereb Cortex 2004). Collaborators: Mark Woolrich, Emma Sillery, Katie Sheehan, Steve Smith, Paul Matthews (Oxford) Alan Thomspon, Olga Cicarelli, Claudia Wheeler-Kingshott, Phil Boulby, Gareth Barker (UCL, London).
