    I have maintained the opinion that we are diagnosable for years. That’s part of the reason why I never understood the aeromedical position on crazy. We are all crazy.

    Here’s the original article in PlosONE.

    Basically a study showing that while pilots or normal controls were lying in the fMRI scanner the changes in cerebral blood flow were more correlated across several brain regions in pilots than in normal healthy controls and that these levels of correlation changed more often in pilots.

    Note who the researchers are and who they studied.
