In my last post, I introduced a bit about PET (positron emission tomography).  These are more glucose-metabolism based PET images of a person doing different activities.  It is pretty awesome that you can see which areas of the brain are active based on where it is using energy (glucose).  These match up with the fMR (functional magnetic resonance) images that you would get from a person doing these same tasks in an MRI machine.
