Wiring of the Human Brain

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has revolutionized medicine and biomedical research since its inception in the early 1970's. The technique relies upon strong magnetic fields and radio waves to non-invasively generate three-dimensional anatomical imagery without requiring the use of ionizing radiation (e.g. x-rays).

This detailed scan of the brain generated by Cardiff University's Brain Research Imaging Centre uses a different MRI technique called Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), which maps the flow of water inside the brain. DTI measures a parameter called anisotropy, which describes the directionality of water molecule diffusion within neuronal structures. By performing a voxel-by-voxel analysis, researchers can construct three-dimensional representations of the axonal tracts in the brain.

"The irrigation that grows crops, especially in dry countries, can also be responsible for taxing aquifers beyond their capacities. Groundwater depletion is embedded in the international food trade, with countries exporting crops grown from overexploited aquifers and setting up potential future food crises if the aquifers run dry."
