These brain images, taken with DTI, show water diffusion within the white matter of children with sensory processing disorders. Row FA : The blue areas show white matter where water diffusion was less directional than in typical children, indicating impaired white matter microstructure. Row MD : The red areas show white matter where the overall rate of water diffusion was higher than in typical children, also indicating abnormal white matter. Row RD : The red areas show white matter where SPD children have higher rates of water diffusion perpendicular to the axonal fibers, indicating a loss of integrity of the fiber bundles comprising the white matter tracts.
