Caption: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) image of a human head, showing details of the brain, spinal cord, nasal airways & oesophagus. In the brain, the cerebral cortex (the folded outer part) is well- defined; in centre is corpus callosum (which connects the left amp; right cerebral hemispheres). The spinal cord runs down the centre of image; the bulb at its top is the pons, & to its right is the cerebellum (involved in equilibrium & coordination). NMR images are obtained by subjecting the body to a large magnetic field which is interrupted by brief radio pulses, & computing reponse of atoms in different tissues (ionising radiations are not used).
