Earliest I'll be at NB nextis Tuesday next week?  I'll be available 
until the Wednesday after THAT week.

Since, as I've said, my background in neuroscience is limited to null;  
What questions are you guys asking yourselfs in terms of what could be 
different, if anything, from data of a neurotypical scan?  If I'm able 
to induce a lucid state (something I feel should be planned for "just in 
case"), should I learn to type while asleep or something like on XKCD?  
I'm fluent in Dvorak, so maybe if my wrists were restricted to a split 
keyboard I could realistically get a few keystrokes in before I regain 
consciousness?
