Challenges of Litigating Traumatic Brain Injury The objective evidence of brain injury on MRI or CT scan. This test done on a normal MRI machine with special software known as # "Diffusion Tensor Imaging" and is particularly sensitive to damages in the white matter tracts of the brain.
This video depicts diffusion imaging, a type of MRI that can trace the neuron connections inside your head. Pioneering researchers like TED speaker Nancy Kanwisher hope these scans will allow us to create a wiring map of the entire human brain. This won’t only help us find a way to treat disorders like Alzheimer's; it will also reveal the very nature of what makes us human. “What could be more thrilling than to understand the fundamental mechanisms that underlie human experience, to…
Plush toy, or Science? White matter connections in the human brain are imaged using diffusion MRI. This “connectome” is output from a 2008 study by Gigandet et al attempting to determine statistical confidence in mapping neural connectivity.
This beautiful picture is a special DTI( Diffusion MRI) imaging technique that focuses on the axons of neurons in the brain, allowing to test neuronal circuits. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffusion_tensor_imaging#Diffusion_tensor_imaging
Textured Brain by Alfred Anwander and Robin M. Heidemann. The image was created through a technique called diffusion MRI, a process where the spread of water molecules through neural tissue can be measured while revealing the amazing number of connections in the brain. via geekosystem #Brain_Art #Alfred_Anwander #Robin_M_Heidemann
