pkrzycki: I think seeing a brain while talking to the person it belonged to would be amazing.  I've had a conversation with a patient while I was replacing the antibiotic soaked gauze where her sternum had been as it had become infected after surgery and was being debrided... When you took the packing out to clean the wound area and put the new packing material in, you could see her heart beating in her chest.... it was amazing....

To this day, it's the most amazing thing I've ever seen... to have this person alive and just bs-ing with you and you can literally see into her chest and look at her beating heart.


... You don't have any white cats do you? I'm just trying to figure out on which side of the hero/villain line you might end up.

But seriously, that is awesome.

Attention Whore of Babylon: have a look at self-trepanation


Nope, nope, nope... I've met someone who espoused it (in words at least, I bugged out before I was offered a chance to see their scar).  My first thought was: "And you vote, drive and can have kids".  My second thought was: "Hrmm, time to be anywhere else."

Me as well.

We've gotten better at it, it's not shooting in the dark anymore, but Bones would still not approve.

I can't even stand seeing cartoon drawings of brains let alone the real thing.
