Interpreting brain diffusion MRI measurements in terms of neuronal structure at a micrometer level is an exciting unresolved problem. Here we consider diffusion transverse to a bundle of fibers, and show theoretically, as well as using Monte Carlo simulations and measurements in a phantom made of parallel fibers mimicking axons, that the time dependent(More)
The presence of micrometer-level restrictions leads to a decrease of diffusion coefficient with diffusion time. Here we investigate this effect in human white matter in vivo. We focus on a broad range of diffusion times, up to 600 ms, covering diffusion length scales up to about 30 μm. We perform stimulated echo diffusion tensor imaging on 5 healthy(More)
