Alex was studied with "fMRI" or functional MRI, which follows localized blood flow in the range of seconds which increases with increased neural activity. The interpretation presented in the film suggests Alex had a decreased response to fearful stimuli (pictures of sinking ships, knives, etc.) since there doesn't appear to be increased activity in the amygdala as compared to other subjects considered to be "normal."

My friends are like, Oh, that'd be terrible, but if I kill myself in an accident, they'll be like, Oh, that was too bad, but like life goes on, you know, like they'll be fine. I mean, and I've had this problem with girls a lot, you know. They're like, Oh, I really care about you, I'm like, No you don't. Like if I perish, like, it doesn't matter, like you'll find somebody else, like, that's not, that's not that big a deal.
