    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;This dataset contains segmentations of 72 white matter tracts obtained from 105 subjects included in the Human Connectome Project (HCP) young adult dataset ( The folder names correspond to the ID of the HCP subjects.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The data is part of the following publication:&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=""&gt;Wasserthal et al., TractSeg - Fast and accurate white matter bundle segmentation. NeuroImage (2018)&lt;/a&gt;. If you use the data please cite the paper.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The tracts were extracted semi-automatically from whole-brain tractograms. For a detailed description of the tract segmentation process please refer to the paper. The following MRtrix ( commands were used to obtain the whole-brain tractograms:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Due to their enormous size, the whole brain tractograms corresponding to the segmented tracts are not included this dataset. Please contact the author of the paper if you are interested in these tractograms.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;From version 1.2.0 of this dataset onwards it uses the newest trackvis (trk) standard (using nibabel.streamlines API). Streamlines are saved in native voxel space and when loaded are transformed to coordinate space using the affine stored in the trk file header. In the previous versions of the dataset the older nibabel.trackvis API was used (streamlines are saved in real coordinate space and no affine is applied when loading them).&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
