At the LCBD, we study how the brain works. While you relax, watch movies and play computer games, our researchers will collect data and take pictures of your brain.
Kids love getting their brain pictures and taking their pictures to school! They love showing them off to friends and family!
Afterwards kids get to sign their name on the wall of fame too!
We will send you home with a picture of your brain in a frame, a visa gift card and a special prize.
You will also be helping the researchers in our lab better understand how the brain works so we can help other kids!
You will get plenty of practice before you go into the real scanner. The researchers will practice the different games that you will play along with the sounds that you will hear in the real scanner.
We will practice the statue game in the mock scanner because it is very important to stay very still. We want you to be able to take home a clear picture of your brain to show your friends and family.
It is also very important that you wear comfy clothes to the visit such as a sweatshirt and sweat pants. You cannot have any metal on your clothes.
You can get ready for the scan at home by practicing the statue game. Simply lay on the floor and have your mom or dad time how long you can stay still.
