This is what your brain looks like on magnetism.

I observed my first two fMRI tests today and I also was a subject for the testing of a new high resolution imaging protocol. There is a significant amount of image processing to be done first, the image above is the raw data from an fMRI scan, but I'll eventually post some images of what my brain looks like while I am worrying about whether or not I remembered to take the change out of my pocket before lying down inside a giant electromagnet.

Much more to come on fMRI (and eyetracking and EEG) in the future, but after spending all day in the radiology department of Stony Brook University Hospital, my brain is a bit fried.
