When my kids were young, we all thought it would be incredibly cool to hop on The Magic School Bus and tour the land, sea, space and our bodies. Originally airing in 1994, The Magic School Bus premiered with the intent to help kids learn about science in a fun way with an animated series.
Now jump ahead twenty years.
Imagine, if you will, putting on an EEG cap (think swimming cap with suction caps that attach to your skull) and looking at a screen showing you what’s happening in your brain in the moment you’re looking at it. Imagine being able to fly thru and around your brain immersed in the activity of neurons firing and network activity lighting the way. What could be more fascinating?
