Abstract
Diffusion weighted imaging (DWI) was used to investigate white matter asymmetries in participants with situs inversus totalis (SIT) and matched controls. Regardless of visceral condition, hemispheric differences were found for the arcuate fasciculus (ARC) and the superior longitudinal fasciculus (SLF), which are involved in language and visuospatial functioning, respectively. The ARC appears lateralized to the left hemisphere, analogous to the left lateralization of functional areas associated with language. The SLF, on the other hand, is lateralized to the right, corresponding with rightward lateralization of visuospatial functioning. Interestingly, SIT participants show a significantly lower number of streamlines in the Uncinate Fasciculus (UNC). In addition, UNC volume appears associated with measures of cognitive performance, a finding in line with previously reported performance differences between SIT participants and controls.
