NMR scan of a childs head, sagittal section Featured 27 Aug 2003 Print

NMR scan of a childs head, sagittal section

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) image of a sagittal (mid-profile) section through a child's head, showing structures of the brain and spinal cord. Details of the brain visible include the folds of the cerebral cortex, the cerebellum (below the rear lobes of the brain hemispheres) and the pons and medulla of the brainstem, the areas of swelling at the top of the spinal cord, which can be seen running down the neck. Unlike X- ray (CT) scanning, NMR imaging does not use ionising radiations; an image is obtained by studying the radio-response of protons in body tissues that are subjected to a strong, pulsed magnetic field

Stilt roots of the palm tree, Iriartea Featured 27 Aug 2003 Print

Stilt roots of the palm tree, Iriartea

Stilt roots. The stilt roots of the palm, Iriartea deltoidia in the rainforest. The roots of this palm can be seen spreading above the ground. Stilt roots (also known as prop roots) emerge from the main trunk and act as a form of buttress. They lend extra support to trees with very wide spreading branches. This is in addition to the root's main roles of subterranean support and absorption of water and minerals. Stilt roots are found on a large number of tropical trees. In forests prone to flooding, such as mangroves, stilt roots can serve to aerate the roots. Photographed in Ecuador
