Quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen

Okay, for all you hard-core neuro-nerds out there, here’s something that’s quite likely to utterly consume your attention for hours — nee, days, even weeks and months — to come.

It’s RMR Systems, Ltd. 3DView Volume Rendering software, and it is a free download that you can install on your PC, and then look at MRI’s in three dimensions.

I mean, this stuff is so incredibly cool, it just boggles the mind. Here are images from the pre-loaded imaging that comes with it, which are “sliced and diced” on different planes. You can zoom in, cut in from all sides, do cross-sections, and other really cool stuff that I can’t even show here, because they really require a YouTube video to have the full effect. I may just make one of them… when I carve out the time from my crazy schedule.

Note: these are not pictures of me. My MRI images are for my eyes only… oh, and my doctors’ eyes.

It really is amazing. Again,RMR Systems, Ltd. 3DView Volume Rendering software, is a free download that you can install on your PC, and then look at MRI’s in three dimensions. If you’ve had an MRI done and you want to see your brain in 3D, you must get a copy of this and view your slices with it.

Like some weirdo geeky Narcissus, I’ve been obsessed with viewing my own brain.

And for good reason.

OMG
