Why we are the way we are: the Internet of our brains.


These are axonal nerve fibers in the real brain as determined by the measured anisotropy (directionality) of water molecules inside them. 3T 30 channel GRAPPA DTI scan protocol, deterministic tractography performed using TrackVis/FACT algorithm.


You might know the subject :-)

    It looks well done. I dwell with this matter recently, but within the natural constraints of a 1.5 magnet and a double ROI protocol to isolate individual fascicles. Fascinating subject as a research and neuroanatomy tool, but lets hope it becomes clinically useful too in daily routine examinations. I guess we need a great improvement in resolution and probably it will take a different model, DSI instead of DTI.
