OriginEdit

Leave it to an electrical engineer to win the 1979 Nobel Prize in Medicine. With a knowledge of military electronics and radar, Godfrey Hounsfield slowly envisioned a radical new medical technology. Using x-rays from every angle would make it possible to construct an image of a covered object. Like a head.

Snapshots were taken as different slices that could be stacked together and form an accurate physical representation, sight unseen. Hounsfield tested it upon himself before marketing, just to make sure it didn't fry patients heads instead. He latter engineered full body scanners, and CT scans have now become common practice in hospitals.

EffectsEdit

Creates an externalized depiction of the user's brain structure, down to the smallest synapse. Regions undergoing large amounts of neural activity will glow, highlighting any obstructions or injury. Applying careful, intentional movements allows the user to perform brain alteration without surgery. Only physical issues can be fully healed - mental conditions rarely seem to improve. However, mistakes can cause irreversible damage on the verge of lobotomy.
