Brain scan

Most of the testing involved me listening to a “word” every five-ish seconds and pressing buttons corresponding to whether I thought the “word” was actually a word ot not.

Not that exciting, but it’s research into how we process speech which could have an interesting results. I got £25 for it and a picture of my brain:
