This is Scientific American's 60-Second Science. I'm Steve Mirsky . Got a minute ?

How do you do a brain scan on a gorilla1. Yeah, yeah, very carefully, right. He sleeps anywhere he wants to, too. But seriously, trying to do an MRI on a gorilla presents certain logistical problems. Back in the 1980s, when a gorilla at the Bronx Zoo needed to be scanned, zoo staff working with pathologists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine slipped the sedated2 primate3 into Montefiore Hospital in the dead of night. The only sign of anything unusual was a big hairy arm sticking out from under a sheet on a gurney.

 Recently, another Bronx Zoo gorilla, named Fubo, needed some high-tech4 evaluation5 after he had a seizure6. But now the MRI machine could come to him. The Brain Tumor7 Foundation sent its Bobby Murcer Mobile MRI Unit over to the zoo. Murcer was a New York Yankee outfielder and broadcaster whose life was cut short in 2008 by a brain tumor. Einstein physicians again worked with zoo vets8 to diagnose the problem. Which appears to be a lesion in Fubo’s left temporal lobe9. He’s being treated—but won’t be released!

Thanks for the minute for Scientific American's 60-Second Science. I'm Steve Mirsky .
