Caption: Brain at rest. Coloured three-dimensional positron emission tomography (PET) scan of the brain at rest. The front of the brain is at top. The scan shows the amount of glucose (sugar) consumption and hence degree of brain activity. During rest there are only a few active areas (green). PET scans use radioactively-labelled substances introduced into the blood to view metabolic activity in three-dimensions.
