fMRI scan

| geek

I signed up for a research study that needed functional magnetic
resonance imaging (fMRI) brain scans of evening-type right-handed
people. They promised to send me some images, and I thought that would
be _so_ bloggable. <laugh> I'll post them when I get them.

I needed to make sure I wasn't wearing anything with any metal, so I
wore a red velvet turtleneck and the red Thai pants, and I took off my
earrings before the scan.

I kept dozing off during the test, though. Repetitive task, horizontal
position, not much sensory input… Meep! And to think they considered
5:00 to be among the peak work hours for evening types…

I hope I haven't screwed up their data too much. =)
