COVER Fiber pathways of a female human brain mapped noninvasively with diffusion magnetic resonance imaging. The image shows an axial view from above (front is at top). Major pathways of the human frontal lobes, and their organization as orthogonal grids, are shown here (cerebral association pathways, vertical; transverse pathways, horizontal). For a description of cortical networks, see the special section beginning on page 577. Image: Van J. Wedeen, Aapo Nummenmaa, Ruopeng Wang, and Lawrence L. Wald/Athinoula A.
