Taking a Look Inside

Hmm. You ever look at the clock and have a sudden realization that it's a lot later than you thought it was? Oh summer, ya do it to me every time.

Yesterday, I got my brain scanned. No don't worry, there's nothing wrong. I signed up for a psychology experiment during the school year, and just recently I've been called to start it.

Getting an MRI is a fascinating process. You have to make sure you don't move at all to make sure the picture works, and I think I did a pretty good job.

The main advice I heard was to not doze off when in the machine. You twitch in your sleep, so that causes a problem. Probably common knowledge for the rest of you, but I thought it was good to know. Luckily, I didn't have a problem with feeling sleepy until the last ten minutes (which seemed to drag on forever). During the last ten minutes I just laid there doing nothing. The time before I was performing all of these different brain tests.

As for my brain... I've got a pretty good lookin' brain. It's so different from the pictures in textbooks it seems. I was just glad to see no mutations. I did get to see the lovely dent that's in the top of my head. Seriously, it's ridiculous looking.

Other than that, I'm hoping I get back to the blogging world a bit more. For awhile there, I was a little far from it. We'll see.

Have you ever gotten your brain scanned?

  1. I've never had a brain scan though I almost got to do a study for class credit sophomore year. We had to participate in a certain number of research studies for the graduate students in order to pass.
