Abstract

Our current effort focuses on representing connectivity relationships between gray and white matter structures in the Foundational Model of Anatomy Ontology (FMA). There are a number of terms used that imply either structural or functional relationship, but the semantics have not been made formally explicit in the ontology. In this work we propose a set of definitions to disambiguate and clarify the terminologies describing the types of connectivity relationships that exist between gray and white matter structures at different levels of granularity.
