Watson and Crick with their DNA model Featured 2014 Print

Watson and Crick with their DNA model

^BCOMMERCIAL USE REQUIRES CLEARANCE.^bThe discoverers of the structure of DNA. James Watson (b.1928) at left and Francis Crick (1916-2004), with their model of part of a DNA molecule in 1953. Crick & Watson met at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge, in 1951. Their work on the structure of DNA was performed with a knowledge of Chargaff's ratios of the bases in DNA and some access to the X-ray crystallography of Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin at King's College London. Combining all of this work led to the deduction that DNA exists as a double helix. Crick, Watson and Wilkins shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine, Franklin having died of cancer in 1958. Photographed in the Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge, UK, in May 1953


White matter fibres of the human brain Featured 2014 Print

White matter fibres of the human brain

White matter fibres. Coloured 3D diffusion spectral imaging (DSI) scan of the bundles of white matter nerve fibres in the brain. The fibres transmit nerve signals between brain regions and between the brain and the spinal cord. Diffusion spectrum imaging (DSI) is a variant of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in which a magnetic field maps the water contained in neuron fibers, thus mapping their criss-crossing patterns. A similar technique called diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is also used to explore neural data of white matter fibres in the brain. Both methods allow mapping of their orientations and the connections between brain regions. Data/software: NIH Human Connectome Project /

Brain motor cortex pathways, artwork

Brain motor cortex pathways. Artwork of a sectioned human brain, brainstem and spinal cord, showing neural pathways (red and blue) from the motor cortex of the brain. These are extrapyramidal pathways: the rubrospinal and reticulospinal tracts. Extrapyramidal pathways control involuntary movements and help co-ordinate movements (muscle at lower left). For an image showing the brain and where these sections were obtained, see C016/6531. The top image is a vertical (coronal) section through the brain at the rear of the frontal lobe. From top to bottom, the horizontal sections are at the level of the: mid brain, pons, medulla, and spinal cord
