      I'm wondering what the consequences of weekly MRIs (for one year) will be on Dr. Poldrack's brain structure and function, if any. This is fascinating--it's like a modern version of Da Vinci dissecting cadavers and drawing human anatomy; except the subject is not deceased.

      I'm amazed after reading this article that how far scientist can go. My God, but what is the name of this brain scanner machine?
