Here we see the brain of an owl monkey viewed from the right, with the face of the animal at far right and the cerebellum, red, at lower left. The image incorporates all the data analyzed during that scan, making it difficult to distinguish individual pathways. “Owing to its density, we see only the surface, the cortex, which has a pincushion appearance,” says Wedeen. He and his team have developed specialized software to display the diffusion data they collect, which allows them to select the specific parts they will visualize.
