Title: The use of images to supplement words goes WAY back


1
The use of images to supplement words goes WAY
back
2
Galileo includes two simple line drawings in the
text explaining his discovery of what would later
be understood as Saturn's rings
3
why so detailed?
from Directions for Observations and Experiments
to Be Made by Masters of Ships, Pilots, and Other
Fit Persons in Their Sea-Voyages in Phil.
Trans., 1666.
4
anatomical diagrams
5
the early modern body wretched vessel of the soul
6
images to illustrate relation between mind and
body(Descartes materialism)
7
microscope seeing the heretofore unseen
8
electron scanning microscope

subatomic particles

Dumit Is It Me or My Brain? Depression and
Neuroscientific Facts
How have we, as readers who encounter scientific
images on a daily basis, come to see brain images
as compelling facts about who we are?
but first some specifics Electroencephalography
(EEG)electrodes on the scalp detect/measure
electrical activity
speed
spatial resolution
12
computed tomography scan (CT scan) X-ray beams
passed through the head, good for showing
structure of brain
13
MRI and fMRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
magnetic fields and radio waves produce
high-quality 2 or 3-dimensional images of brain
structures
14
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) measures
emissions from radioactively chemicals that have
been injected into the bloodstream uses this
data to produce two- or three-dimensional images
of the distribution of the chemicals throughout
the brain. (i.e. can depict brain activity)

In their symbolic use, they seem to signify
science, progress, biological selves, digital
imaging, and the technological powers of
progress, all at once. But they also often signal
human differences as well, dividing us and
measuring our deviation from normal.

kinds of brains
kinds of people
absolute differences between people
In discussing brain images we come face-to-face
with an uncertainty regarding our own normality,
and regarding the 'kinds' of humans that we and
others are.
19
The Objective Self consists of our
taken-for-granted notions, theories, and
tendencies regarding human bodies, brains, and
kinds considered as objective, referential,
extrinsic, and objects of science and medicine.
objective self is distinct from subjective self
subjective self I have OCD objective self I
brain is an OCD brain
20
the increasing prominance of the objective self
(due mainly to the circulation of brain
images) impact on concepts of 1) responsibility,
2) agency, and 3) self
A depressive disorder is an illness that
involves the body, mood, and thoughts. It affects
the way a person eats and sleeps, the way one
feels about oneself, and the way one thinks about
things. A depressive disorder is not the same as
a passing blue mood. It is not a sign of personal
weakness or a condition that can be willed or
wished away. People with a depressive illness
cannot merely "pull themselves together" and get
better.- NIMH website
