Neuroscientists Are Really Upset About Major Neuroscience Projects

Conexiones en un cerebro humano vivo con una variación de la resonancia magnética (IRM) se llama imágenes por tensor de difusión. Esta técnica, desarrollada en la década de 1990, deduce la ubicación de las fibras nerviosas mediante el seguimiento de las moléculas de agua en el cerebro a medida que avanzan a lo largo de ellas. La imagen de arriba muestra las fibras que irradian desde el tálamo en un cerebro humano. Crédito: Thomas Schultz (Universidad de Chicago)


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.

A functional MRI (fMRI), seen at left, can identify regions where blood flow increases in the brain during particular cognitive tasks. A diffusion MRI, seen at right, can identify the white matter that carries information between regions of the brain.
