Caption: MRI brain scans. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of a coronal (vertical front) view of a healthy human brain. The exact position of each scan is shown by the white lines through the sagittal (vertical side) view of the brain at upper left. The largest part of the brain, the cerebrum (blue, green or brown), carries out conscious mental activity. It is split into left and right hemispheres. Below the cerebrum are the two hemispheres of the cerebellum (coloured red in the scan at lower left). This is involved in balance and muscular coordination. MRI scanning uses radio wave pulses to view slices through the body in order to detect disorders like tumours.
