Brain and Ventricle Development

Three-dimensional reconstruction of the whole brain (top row ) ventricular space (bottom row).

Different colors represent different brain structures: whole brain (gray) and ventricle (pink).

Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) A newly developed form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Magnetic field variations of the MRI magnet are applied in at least six different directions generating a three dimensional shape of the diffusion pattern. This technique can be used in neural imaging of white matter due to the orientation of axon bundles and the associated water flow. (More? Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
