what they were thinking:

“These images, generated with M.R.I. and PET scans, show the way different thoughts affect the flow of blood to the brains of research subjects. Each of the four groups above represents one averaged, composite brain from different views. The upper left corner shows a brain thinking pleasant thoughts and the upper right brain is thinking depressing thoughts; the lower left, anxiety-inducing thoughts; the lower right, irritating thoughts. Areas in red indicate intense brain activity; areas in purple, reduced brain
activity. (Images from Dr. Hanna Damasio, University of Iowa College of Medicine.) ”

but i’d really like to know how these people were thinking:

“Some brain-injury victims who lose the ability to understand speech develop a talent that could come in handy during an election year: an uncanny ability to tell when someone is lying.”
