Although the signals are small and only measured relative to one another, highly sophisticated statistical formulae can be applied to lift the data out of its background: signal to noise ratio is created by interpreting these electrical flows as signs of active, firing neurons whose direction and connections can then be mapped. DTI MRI, a complementary and newer technology, uses water-diffusion to measure connectivity in the brain’s white matter in ROIs. White matter is the name given to the nerve fibres or axons deep inside the brain which carry messages across regions: buried at the core of ROIs, white matter used to be hard to image, but DTI has recently made it accessible.
