Caption: Brain in the skull. Coloured three-dimensional scan of the brain and skull, using Computed Tomo- graphy (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The head is seen in side view. Bones of the face are coloured blue (at left), with the jawbone and neck vertebrae at lower centre. Scan data of the cranium of the skull have been excluded, to expose the deeper left side of the brain (orange). This is the large cerebrum of the brain with surface folds and convolutions. The cerebrum is involved in conscious thought and memory. CT scanning (X- rays) and MRI scanning (magnetic field and radio waves) create "slices" through the body. These "slices" were recombined to form this 3-D image.
