brain

About half of our brain is composed of white matter - millions of fibers that act as data lines between distant brain regions. Capturing the full wiring diagram of the brain can be regarded as one of the great scientific challenges of our time. In this talk, you will learn about a special type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - called diffusion MRI - that can reveal white matter structure in the living brain in unprecedented detail. You will discover how UAntwerpen is improving this cutting edge technique as well as using it to study neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
