Mind Map Lamp

fibre optic brain scan lamp
  [vote for,

Now that it's possible to have a scan carried out, which maps the internal wiring of the brain, the next step is to transfer the resulting 3D images to a lamp manufacturer.

They will use the information to create a fibre optic version of your brain that you can use as a nice novelty lamp.

Lamps come in a variety of sizes and colour configurations.

       [+] Great idea. The real architecture of the brain was a mystery until this method was used, because it was based on cell bodies from slices rather than neuronal projections. It's so much simpler than people thought. Kids learning neuronal anatomy like this is good for lots of stuff.

       I love it. Build a mock-up and put it on Kickstarter.

       Sweeet. So is that circular open space the Thalamus then?   

       One of your neatest ideas. +   

       Now make a rainbow wig version to wear at parties and you've really got something.

I just watched an interesting show about scanning the parts of the brain that shows emotions and people who believe in a higher conciousness had frontal lobes that lit up whereas atheists did not!

       //So is that circular open space the Thalamus then?// It's a sort of dead zone, re emitting no signals of a sufficient strength to indicate second level intellectual activity, and consequently been nick-named "The Tea Zone". (as in Tea Party)

       I thought it was a reasonable question...
