In order to help neuroscience researchers better investigate correlations between human brain structure and function, three visualization techniques were implemented in an existing neuroscience investigation software tool. These techniques aimed to produce effective visualizations of gray matter and white matter in the same virtual scene. The three techniques were: 1) wireframe rendering of the gray matter 2) multiple views of separate data sets with linked vantage point and 3) abstraction of white matter pathways drawn as arcs going outside the gray matter.
