Face to face   The Princeton Neuroscience Institute is home to the world’s first brain scanner built for two, according to The New Scientist. Ray Lee, technical director of the University’s imaging facility, developed a dual-headed functional-MRI scanner that can record brain activity in two people while they face each other. At the Society for Neuroscience conference in November, Lee presented results from early tests, including one in which participants blinked in unison, activating an area of the brain involved in facial recognition.
