Pathway Tract ID is a fun and interactive tool for examining the fiber tracts that run through the central nervous system. Users can peruse through brain areas known to be involved in different behaviors, such as audition or movement. Clicking on a brain area brings up text describing its location, connections, and known functions. Users can also choose to watch short animations that show how information descends through the selected pathway. Additionally, the app allows users to take screenshots of their pathway of interest and even has a drawing feature that lets users annotate the images. Pathway Tract ID provides a fun and intuitive way for users to examine the brain more closely and discover how different parts of the brain interact with each other.
