Abstract

Structural connectivity models result from a complex processing chain involving many different steps, each having an impact on the reliability of the final measures. One of the hottest questions in the state-of-the-art is thus “To which extent can we trust the structural connectome?”. In this work, we tackled this issue by focusing on the typical processing pipeline and investigating the impact of the main involved steps. MRTrix CSD-based probabilistic tractography provided the highest stability across subjects and MRTrix reached the largest distance with respect to other softwares in both individual subject and group analysis.
