Stanford psychologist’s brain scanned in MRI for 18 months, twice a week

December 14th, 2015

When I was a graduate student in Baylor College of Medicine I participated in an “exercise and brain” study in our lab as a subject, and got my brain scanned every week for about 10 weeks. I thought it was crazy; but apparently it’s not nearly as crazy as Russell Poldrack, a Stanford psychologist, who scanned his brain for 18 months, twice a week. Wow!

The result was published in Nature Communications in December, 2015.

I find what is amazing is that they shared their data publicly online. You can download the data at http://myconnectome.org/wp/.

Try Stork, a research tool we developed

Stork is a publication alert app developed by us at Stanford. As a researcher we often forget to follow up important publications - and it's practically impossible to search many keywords or researchers' names everyday. Stork can help us to search everyday and notifies us when there are new publications/grants. How Stork helped me?
