MRI Claymation

It's a long weekend here in the US of A, it's hotter than Hades here in northern California (they said there would be a fog-cooled sea breeze! I want my money back!), and I am only halfway through the next post in the background physics series on account of having spent a very pleasant week in Quebec at the Human Brain Mapping conference. So, in lieu of anything more useful at short notice, I thought I'd share a truly awesome video I just found online, courtesy of Andre van der Kouwe and colleagues at MGH. The first two minutes demonstrate the method - surface renderings from MRIs of clay figures - and then it gets really fun: MRI making an image of itself.

427 views in two years simply doesn't do this work justice. Let's fix that!
