Caption: Healthy brain. Four Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) scans through the human head, showing the brain in sagittal (side) view. From top left to bottom right, the scans progress from the outer to the middle part of the brain. A profile of the face is seen on the left of each image. Inside the skull the large cerebrum of the brain appears convoluted (highly folded); it is associated with higher brain function such as memory and reasoning. Dark cavities within the cerebrum are fluid-filled ventricles. At the level of the ear, the smaller cerebellum is visible, which controls balance and coordinates movement. MRI scanning is useful in detecting brain tumours and cancer.
