Los Alamos researcher Michelle Espy adjusts the MEG helmet on Michelle 
        Martinez. Shown is the exterior wall of the helmetŐs thermos, which maintains 
        the liquid helium at cryogenic temperatures. Even though the top of the 
        patientŐs skull is just centimeters from a pool of liquid helium at nearly 
        absolute zero, the thermos material insulates so well that the patient 
        feels no discomfort.
