Guess the mystery device!

COMPETITION! Guess the mystery item at the bottom of the post. Prize available. See below.

Further neglect arising from a delightful holiday in Sicily and a 4 day course on FSL in Bristol. FSL is a tool for analysing fMRI, MRI and DTI brain imaging data, and it’s pretty nifti*. This isn’t really anything to do with what I work on, but it’s nice to have a bit more knowledge about the various tools and methods that go into these kinds of imaging analyses, especially for understanding imaging papers. Bristol is rather nice, too:

Bristol Cathedral

We walked past the Cathedral every morning, which was delightful


"Do NOT put chewing gum in the urinals - this causes blockages and flooding [and it ruins the flavour]"

Chemistry department toilets

This device is in the Bristol Clinical Research and Imaging Centre. If you leave a comment with an amusing guess, I may send you a prize. This prize may be good, or not. People that I’ve told the answer to, don’t spoil it. Also, no Googling. Points for creativity.

If you can guess what this is, I will give you a prize

    I googled it. Dammit. Why did you tell me not to!
