MRI images that provide life-saving glimpses inside our bodies can capture pure love, too. The scan of neuroscientist Rebecca Saxe cradling and tenderly kissing her 2-month-old son Percy offers a modern, unforgettable twist on the classic mother-child portrait.

Some people look at it and see mostly the differences: How thin his skull is, how little space there is between the outside world and his brain. It’s just this very fragile, very thin little shell on the other hand, you can look at it and see how similar it is to his mother’s brain, Saxe said.

One big difference is that a baby’s brain has almost no myelin, the insulation on the wires that communicate messages inside your brain. She is a professor of cognitive neuroscience at MIT, studies how our brains construct thoughts and language. She’s particularly interested how they acquire and develop those capacities during childhood.

The process was difficult as you have to hold still for a few minutes to get the picture. Try to convince a little baby to lie. The machine is very noisy, so she wore ear plugs, while the baby had pads over his ears. It took 25 attempts each day to produce that scan.
