Alex's brain scan in the film is referred to as an "MRI." This imaging modality is commonly used on athletes who need to have the extent of tissue damage visualized by a radiologist. 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."

Does not disappoint - and I was expecting a lot
Coincidentally, our family did a hiking vacation in Yosemite a week after Alex Honnald did this climb. I knew nothing about climbing but our guided hike took us to the top of El Capitan. I was unable or unwilling to get within 100 yards of the edge - since at 101 yards there was a 3000 foot cliff.
That someone climbed this face without ropes (Ok, or with ropes) amazes me and I have been waiting for this movie since I heard about its production. It is a documentary and while you know the end before it starts, it is still one of the more suspenseful movies I've seen.
