White matter fibres. Coloured diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) scan of the brain, showing the bundles of white matter nerve fibres. The fibres transmit nerve signals between brain regions and between the brain and the spinal cord. DTI scans show the diffusion of water along white matter fibres, allowing their orientations and the connections between brain regions to be mapped. Red corresponds to left to right orientation, green to front to back orientation and blue to up and down orientation.
