In fact, 53-year-old Kim's Pick, who can not dress themselves and find a knife at home, in orbit, of course, no one will send. However, researchers at NASA believe that the technology with which we study the effect on human space travel, will help explain the startling intelligence Peak. A group of scientists in Salt Lake City intends to use a number of studies, including computed tomography and magnetic resonance mapping (MRI). According to their results will be a three-dimensional picture of the structure is conscious brain Peak.
Furthermore, they intend to compare the data obtained with a series of studies using MRI, performed several years ago psychiatrist Pick Dr. Dan Christensen University of Utah. This will let you know how since changed his mind. Sam "Rain Man" has already agreed to conduct experiments that could unlock the secrets of his mental activity.
