Diffusion MRI of the Brain: The location of nerve fibers is inferred by tracking the movement of water molecules along them.


This beautiful picture is a special DTI( Diffusion MRI) imaging technique that focuses on the axons of neurons in the brain, allowing to test neuronal circuits.

Inside the Brain: A Photo Journey Through Time

{View of a Stroke} A brain-imaging method called diffusion MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) is relatively new to the field of neuroscience, though it shows promise as a diagnostic tool. Here, an image taken from the brain of a patient who suffered a stroke in the thalamus and midbrain, resulting in damage to certain axons (some are visible at the bottom of the image).

A functional MRI (fMRI), seen at left, can identify regions where blood flow increases in the brain during particular cognitive tasks. A diffusion MRI, seen at right, can identify the white matter that carries information between regions of the brain.
