I've had a lot of brain scans, and I had brain surgery last year. I asked the surgeon take get a picture of my brain for me during the surgery, and I still have it if anyone wants me to post it.

A cautionary note about Dr. Amen and his SPECT scans:
https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/dr ... ect-scans/

Quote:
Neurologist Robert Burton wrote an article called “Brain scam” in Salon. The title says it all. Among other things, he is appalled that Amen claims to know how to prevent and treat Alzheimer’s.

In an article titled “Brain scans: not quite ready for prime time” Dr. Thomas Insel, the director of the National Institute for Mental Health, characterizes brain imaging as “still primarily a research tool.” He cautions that “entrepreneurial zeal capitalizing on scientific advances needs to be tempered by reality checks.”


If this guy actually knew how to cure Alzheimer's, he would be at TED, not TEDx. I don't believe him.
