ex machina

what they were thinking:
"These images, generated with M.R.I. and PET scans, show the way different thoughts affect the flow of blood to the brains of research subjects. Each of the four groups above represents one averaged, composite brain from different views. The upper left corner shows a brain thinking pleasant thoughts and the upper right brain is thinking depressing thoughts; the lower left, anxiety-inducing thoughts; the lower right, irritating thoughts. Areas in red indicate intense brain activity; areas in purple, reduced brain activity. (Images from Dr. Hanna Damasio, University of Iowa College of Medicine.) "
but i'd really like to know how these people were thinking:
"Some brain-injury victims who lose the ability to understand speech develop a talent that could come in handy during an election year: an uncanny ability to tell when someone is lying."

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
