Second image[edit]

The second image: "FMRI image of the brain of a participant in the Personal Genome Project." looks a lot like an MRI, rather than an fMRI. Does anyone have an argument for keeping this? I think it could provoke confusion. Freeranging intellect (talk) 16:47, 1 November 2013 (UTC)

It's difficult to say without seeing the scan parameters, but I'd guess this is an un-processed fMRI run. After all, that's just an MR sequence, right? You don't get blobs until it's processed. GyroMagician (talk) 16:06, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
