Brain fibres. 3D diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a selection of nerve pathways (green/yellow) in the brain. The brain is seen from above, with the front of the brain at top. The ventricles are pink and the brain's cortical surface is blue. Diffusion tensor imaging measures the direction of water diffusion, which in the brain reveals the orientation of nerve fibres. The technique is also known as tractography, with the resulting image known as a tractogram.
