Virtual anatomical dissection of a healthy adult human brain using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In this bird's eye (superior) view, the front of the brain is facing the top of the image and the back of the brain is at the bottom. This image shows a brain slice from a structural MRI scan of a healthy living subject. It has been processed using advanced 3D rendering techniques to mimic the appearance of the brain as it may look after a real post-mortem dissection. Image is false-coloured (orange). Everyday thousands of similar brain scans are collected by clinicians and neuroscientists around the world to study and explore how the living human brain works and to investigate how it changes during normal development or disease.
