This is my brain on antimatter

When I was 18 I went with my twin brother to Switzerland to have brain scans for narcolepsy research. The scan was positron emission tomography, and I thus received a fair old whack of radiation. Nevertheless, the science groupie in me remains immensely proud that I’ve had freaking antimatter blasting out of my brain.
