One volunteer from each tour group will be selected for the live scan of his/her own working brain, to be viewed by the group.

Volunteer for the Brain Scan:

If you would like to volunteer for having your brain scanned, please indicate your interest when you call to register. You will be sent an MRI screening questionnaire from the Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute, which will include personal questions about your health. The lab's researchers will be responsible for selecting the volunteer for the actual brain scan from each tour group. If you are selected, you will be asked to sign consent forms.


The Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute is located walking distance from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, which is accessible from the hotel in San Francisco where the conference will take place. Walking directions will be provided to you in advance of the tour.
