A Real-Time Singing MRI Holiday Greeting/Nightmare Fodder
Christmas was yesterday, but I’m the kind of person who likes to prolong the magic of the season. And by that I mean I want to haunt your dreams with a Christmas carol that you will never unsee.
Behold this real-time MRI of someone singing “Deck The Halls” by the folks at the Beckman Institute. The real use of technology like this is to study the dynamics of human speech by looking inside someone’s head. It also has an interesting side-effect: Whenever I hear this song, for the rest of my life, I will see this.
