Oxford explains inner workings of brain

The university have launched a new animation to replicate a MRI scan and how our brain works.

Dr Stuart Clare of Oxford University, lead scientific advisor on the animation, said:

‘The animation beautifully shows what is going on inside the body during an FMRI scan, right down to the atomic level, and how the very strong magnet at the core of the machine gives us incredible detail on brain function.

‘Ruby Wax has a real interest in the neuroscience of mental health, something that we are researching here in Oxford, and we were delighted that she agreed to voice the animation.’
