What a thought looks like

Ever wondered what a thought might look like, in real life, as it flashes across the various neurons and synapses we call ‘the brain’?

Yes, sure, there are numerous digitally-animated artist’s renditions out there, but what about reality?

Now, for the first time, a thought has been filmed as it forms and flashes across a brain.


Granted, it’s a baby zebrafish thinking it, and granted, the thought was something aking to ‘ooh, look, fudz, NOM!’, but still. Quite the stunning image.

Now, what am I having for lunch?
