      I use equipment like MRI and PET machines to look inside people’s heads. So it’s just a picture, rather than slicing open people’s heads to look inside! I do work with people who do slice open people’s heads, but even then it’s not too gross. We have really cool equipment which freezes the brain solid, which makes it less gross to pull out.
