(p.159) 8 Conclusion
Handling Digital Brains

Morana Alač

The MIT Press

This concluding part of the book explains the relationship between digital visuals of the brain and laboratory practitioners in the practice of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Important concepts such as semiotic gestures, embodiment, and multimodal artifacts explain how the apprentices acquire the professional skills in dealing with digital brain visuals. The main purpose of the book is to show that the lab apprentices treat the fMRI visuals as the field of interaction. In this section, the author expresses her attempts and views, and also highlights other practitioners' views on fMRI. She explains throughout the book that hand movements and semiotic acts are very important in analyzing fMRI experimental data.

Keywords:   digital brain visuals, lab practitioners, semiotic gestures, multimodal artifacts, fMRI data analysis, lab apprentices
