Every month we'll publish a new image taken by CABI researchers. Can you guess what it is?


WHAT: Neuronal tracts in a healthy human brain

SIZE: Each fibre is less than 1mm in diameter

IMAGE: Tractography created from diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI)

USE: Tractography is an MRI technique used to study the connections between different areas of the brain. The technique maps the directions that neurons travel in white brain matter. In neurological diseases such as stroke and dementia, tractography is a valuable tool for identifying regions of damage or disruption to neuron pathways.
