Neural pathways in the brain

Diffusion-tensor magnetic resonance imaging (dt-MRI) is used to non-invasively measure the diffusion of water molecules through living tissues to highlight areas of activity and structures in the brain. Here, the brain's neural pathways have been reconstructed using tractography, a technique for modeling dt-MRI data. Credit: NICHD/P. Basser
