FUN FACTS

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.



KID’S CORNER

BELOW IS A PICTURE OF A BRAIN- CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE? WHICH ONE LOOKS BETTER? WHICH ONE WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE PICTURE OF? CAN YOU TELL WHY?

KIDS BRAIN PICTURES

 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 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.

If you want you are welcome to bring a stuffed animal or blanket from home for comfort. Our nurse will make sure it is safe to come into the scanner with you.

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.
