March 12th, 2012 Brain Injuries Revealed in High-Def

from here
Traumatic brain injury can be difficult to treat, especially if there is nerve damage. The nerve network crisscrosses its way through the brain, making it difficult to trace and even image.

High-definition fiber-tracking map shows a million brain fibers in an uninjured brain.

High definition fiber tracking reveals loss of fibers, or connections, on the injured right side (yellow) and the intact, undamaged left side (green).

That rainbow-afroed, John 3:16-sign-carrying guy at basketball games finally got a haircut. Must be summer.
