Meet Alan Jasanoff

(5:06) Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has revolutionized our understanding of the human brain, but the method is now approaching the limit of its capabilities. Alan Jasanoff hopes to break through this limit and to develop new technologies for imaging the molecular and cellular phenomena that underlie brain function.

I am sure that humans have no limits to their brain. I am sure the science in one day will be able to use people brains to do unnatural phenomenal.
