Language Pathways of the Brain
Areas of the brain responsible for speech and language have been mapped to two different brain regions. This image shows a 3D-printed reconstruction of the arcuate fasciculus, the white-matter pathway connecting these two areas. The images was generated using a type of MRI called "diffusion imaging" that tracks the movement of water molecules.
