Abstract

The corpus callosum (CC) is the largest of the fiber bundles present in the human brain, and its name derives from its hard consistency caused by the presence of myelinated fibers. It represents the largest and most voluminous brain commissure and a white matter station. CC alterations may be identified in many neurodevelopmental disorders.
