    OUR PLANETARIUM SHOW TOURS THROUGH YOUR BRAIN. We organize an fMRI scan of your brain, and our final animations will feature a fly-through of the 3D images extracted from this scan. If you desire, your actual brain activity - visuals of how your brain processes sensory information - will also be featured. The scans will be arranged by Weill Cornell Medical College / New York-Presbyterian Hospital's Neuroradiology department in New York City. You will additionally be provided with a CD of your data. This reward requires a medical waiver form and subjects must be scan-safe (no pacemakers, cochlear implants, etc.); contact the project creator for further details. All scans will be reviewed by an attending radiologist. Travel not included.
    And, of course, you also receive two tickets to a screening and your name will be featured at a *prominent* point in the connectome constellation actually projected in the dome.
