Objectives Signal attenuation in Diffusion Weighted MRI (OW-MRI) of the brain originates from multiple sources [l] that are being studied extensively, in order to quantify their relative contributions to the OW-MRI signal in health and disease. Recently it was also suggested that some of these mechanisms can be used to detect neuronal activity directly by OW-MRI [2]. However, sources of physiological 'noise' such as bulk motion of the tissue, or flow of oxy/non-oxygenated blood, complicate the… CONTINUE READING
