A Tour of my Brain | Dustin Curtis

In April of 2006, when I was 19, I suddenly started getting painful headaches. Over the course of several weeks, they increased in intensity until the pain was unbearable. I saw a neurologist, and he ordered some tests including an MRI series.

Thankfully, the MRIs showed nothing wrong, and we later found the cause of the headaches to be my murderous car emitting carbon monoxide into the cabin. But one good thing did come out of the whole experience: I now have a complete series of MRIs showing my real, actual brain. I'd like to show them to you (and maybe try to remember some random neuroanatomy facts).
