Disconnectome map of lesions that manifested with vertigo

Disconnectome map of all 10 lesions that manifested with vertigo from published case reports on hemispheric infarcts. Disconnectome results are shown with a threshold at 0.5 (greater than 50% probability of disconnection). Disconnection was observed for the posterior fronto-insular tracts (IV, V) that connect the posterior insula with the opercula. Intra-hemispheric disconnection affected the arcuate fascicle and the superior longitudinal fascicle (SLF, mostly third branch). (Source: Conrad J, Boegle R, Ruehl RM, Dieterich M.
