Subjects read Chapter 9 of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone one word at a time while their activity was recorded using an Elekta MEG scanner. Words were presented for 0.5 seconds each. The Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Boards have approved and overseen this study. 

This study was performed by Tom Mitchell's lab at Carnegie Mellon University.
