Jose Guerrero-Gonzalez Named 2021 Cool Science Image Contest Winner

White matter, the connective nerve tissue of the brain, has been colored according to the predominant orientation of fibers- red, right-left; green, front-back; blue, up-down -in different regions of the human brain to reveal pathways traversing the regions. Understanding white matter organization may offer insights into normal brain development as well as into the study of neurological disorders.

Congratulations to postdoctoral fellow Jose Guerrero-Gonzalez, along with mentors Andrew Alexander (professor, Medical Physics) and Peter Ferrazzano (professor, Pediatrics) for winning the UW 2021 Cool Science Image Contest with this image from an MRI scanner!
