Fig. 1. Schematic summary of microstructural complexity investigated with mean kurtosis. Free water has the Gaussian distribution of the displacement profile, leading to zero kurtosis. However, as brain tissues develop, increasingly occupying space and hindering diffusion, the diffusion profile becomes more complicated and deviates from the Gaussian distribution. This results in increased kurtosis.
