Dead Fish Love Happy People

In a shocking paper released by UCSB scientists, dead fish can sense human emotion. No, really. The scientists placed dead fish in an MRI machine and asked the limp salmon to respond to various emotional states. The MRI lit up. Does this explain all the interesting MRI results we've heard over the last decade or so? Most of them are likely valid, so not entirely. But the point is, of course, that even high-tech procedures need control groups to eliminate the effect of random noise in the result.
