Overall Winner - Intracranial recording for epilepsy
This photograph shows the surface (cortex) of a human brain belonging to an epileptic patient, displaying the arteries and veins that supply its nutrients and oxygen. This photograph was taken before an intracranial electrode recording procedure, in which a flexible electrode grid is attached to the surface of the brain. The patient is then taken to the telemetry ward, where they are observed and recorded for a period of up to two weeks. Post-observation, the surgeon reviews the recordings and evaluates the data using the unique numbers on the grid implant to identify the specific areas of the brain that need to be removed during the next operation. This patient made a full recovery and no longer suffers from epileptic fits. Credit: Robert Ludlow, UCL Institute of Neurology, London / Wellcome Images

  11. the 5 stages of tumblr

    stage 1: you will understand nothing, "wtf is this" will be a reoccurring thought

    stage 2: once you kind of get the hang of it, you will be on constantly and obsess over followers, even though your blog is probably still shit

    stage three: probably the shortest of all the stages, you will get bored of tumblr for a while and go out in the "real world".

    stage four: you realize how addicting tumblr really is and how foolish you were to believe you could just leave

    stage five: tumblr becomes your life support. this stage never ends.
