Oxford University have launched a new animation to look at our brain and how we move and talk.
The video is the latest from the web portal which gives people access to some of the exciting science happening at the university.
Ruby Wax narrates the animation where a Magnetic Resonance Kmaging (MRI) scanner sees inside our brains and detects surges of oxygenated blood to how we move.
Dr Stuart Clare of Oxford University, lead scientific advisor on the animation, said: ‘Functional MRI is revolutionising our understanding of the brain. As long as someone can do something lying down then we can scan their brain and discover the activity behind the action."
"As technology improves and magnet strength increases, we can determine finer detail about brain activity related to particular tasks or behaviours. This isn't just about finding out how our brains work, but also how they respond to damage or treatment.
