IN AN UNPRETENTIOUS medical clinic in downtown Toronto, there’s a man who can literally see inside the human brain. His name is Mark Doidge, and using a clinical electroencephalogram (commonly known as an EEG) he can create what he calls a “Portrait of Your Mind.”
With the help of some sophisticated software, Doidge is able to create dynamic, three-dimensional “movies” of brain activity. The images he generates aren’t just scientifically intriguing; they’re also works of art. And when music is used to stimulate brain activity, Doidge’s portraits become displays of fireworks, bursting with color. Full story.
