Caption: False-colour magnetic resonance image (MRI) of the cerebrum of a normal brain seen in a coronal section. The red area represents the white matter which is mostly formed by nerve fibres. Its real colour (white) is due to a substance called myelin, composed of fat and protein, which surrounds the nerve fibres acting as an electric insulator. The white matter is surrounded by folded layers of grey matter (yellow and blue) which is formed by the cell bodies of neurones, dendrites and glial cells. The latter form the special connective tissue of the brain. The region occupied by the grey matter is concerned with conscious thought, sensation and movement.
