Oh well... that's the thing about audiences. We all bring our own unique experiences and expectations to the things we consume. I really enjoyed the scene exactly how it played out and thought the gift was a terrific indication of not only Sheldon's feelings for Amy but of his understanding of her interests. I thought it was definitely on par with Leonard's snowflake and Howard's star... great gifts for the persons they most love.

The show's canon in regards to Sheldon is Sheldon greatest love is Sheldon. Proof of that came minutes later when Amy was wearing HP wear and instead of getting excited over  what she was wearing he got mad she went to the Wizarding World without him. On par with Leonard and Howard's gifts?  Really?

Most of my female friends who watch the show love Sheldon's gifts throughout these years and were very moved by this MRI gift. Howard's and Leonard's gifts are very thoughtful and precious too. But I personally prefer Sheldon's gifts.

Let me put it this way, if it was any other girl, Howard's necklace would still work. But a lot of Sheldon's gifts, the MRI, him changing his emergency contact, adding Amy'a name to the title of FWF, those are exclusive to Amy. If I receive a necklace that once was in space, to me it means the person saying "I love you and I want you to have this precious gift." But with the MRI, it basically means "I love you and every time I think of you, I feel happy and only you could do this to me." Well, call me immature but I prefer the  latter one:)

I definitely disagree with you but to each his or her own

Again thoses are things he took advantage of. The emergency contact she was being contacted for Sheldon's imaginary ailments and regretted it by the end of the episode. The title changing should've been way before that with FWF. Even after changing the title it didn't make them equals. I kind of have a different meaning for the MRI. To me it says you're the only one to put up with my crap. I will never find anyone else. When Amy and Sheldon go to Texas it appears Mary agrees with my theory.

After all the pages that have been filled with talk about kissing and gifts i think we should discuss something important like why raj couldn't catch a bag of m&ms

I can seem not catching the m&m's. He managed to lose two women with one  more than eager to have sex with him. I can still remember when Emily was telling him about her tattoos. There was a hot kiss in that episode.(like the way I worked my way back to the kissing)

I don't think the meaning behind Sheldon's gift is to show how magnificent his brain is. The MRI is to show how several parts of his brain light up when he thinks of Amy. Maybe you are referring to the episode where Sheldon did an MRI with Beverly. That one was for the purpose of ego boost.
 

I love computers and work with them. Not sure if my girlfriend bought me one with flashing lights will be romantic to me. Sweet yes. Romance should not be work related. I'm sure Amy already has scans of his brain.

Technically, Sheldon's gift is not the MRI scan. I'm sure Amy has his scans. The gift is him telling Amy "My brain lights up thinking of you". Speaking from my personal experience, you see most of the time, girls don't necessarily need gifts that are useful or expensive, as we can buy those things ourselves. What we need is to know how important we are to our partners.

Well I'm surprised Sheldon didn't come up with that. He told the guys his was functional and aesthetically pleasing. Of course he could get it blown up and put it in a picture frame like Amy and Penny's painting. Since that painting got moved to 4a there is space in 4b.

Wasn't there an episode where Sheldon wouldn't open the door to 4A for Amy & Penny (they were angry at him for some reason) saying he wasn't wearing pants. He finally did and had dropped trou (off camera). Amy was smiling huge; Penny looked disgusted and said "pull up your pants"!  Am I  dreaming? Help!!

But the scan doesn't light up when she looks at it. Just what sheldon said. Defeats the purpose. End of the day, just a scan of what she gets excited about as shown when she works on any brains, be it monkeys or whatever.

I do understand what your saying. Leonard's gift wasn't useful or expensive either. But I don't remember anything happening in the episode  that took away from the moment. In the last episode Sheldon getting upset over the gowns took away from the moment at least for me. Just like I thought it was touching, and someone mentioned earlier, when Sheldon made Amy the Emergency Contact. Then for me it was ruined in the tag when Sheldon took advantage of that.

I guess next year for my girlfriends birthday, I get her a scan of my erected dick. I'm sure she will find it romantic, or even better I mould a version of it. Howard gave Bernadette a star that went to space. Leonard made a snowflake that will last forever. No comparison. Sheldon got a scan of his brain. Yeah really romantic. If Sheldon bought Amy a washing machine. Ppls will think it's romantic. Sorry this is one of the reasons why Sheldon has no clue but is written as knows everything for stupid jokes that are not funny cause doesn't make sense. it's not romantic giving your girlfriend a scan of your brain for her birthday just like giving her a hoover for her b’day. It's the thoughts that count, not a ego self boost, that his brain is better than everyone else. I'm sure Amy as her job specs requires has seen more brains than she has had hot dinner. Just another brain. No biggie. Just goes to show how Amy is just used as a tool for Sheldon.

From Cartermatt: http://cartermatt.com/234969/big-bang-theory-season-10-episode-12-preview-sheldon-amys-trip-texas/

‘The Big Bang Theory’ season 10, episode 12 preview: About Sheldon, Amy’s trip to Texas

We had head before now that the upcoming January 5 episode of “The Big Bang Theory” was going to offer up a chance for us to learn a little bit more about how Howard and Bernadette are coping with having Baby Halley Wolowitz in their lives; using flashbacks, we’ll understand just how difficult their adjustment was, but also how regarding they are ultimately finding becoming parents for the first time.

One other thing that we are going to be seeing in this episode is something we did not expect: A trip to Sheldon Cooper’s home state of Texas, and the return of Laurie Metcalf as Sheldon’s mom to boot. Today, CBS released the official synopsis for the upcoming episode entitled “The Holiday Summation” 

(more in the link)

The article is a bit misleading when it talks about 'differences' between Amy and Mary. Certainly Amy is very different in many ways from Mary, but they've never had any of the kind of differences they need to 'put aside'. They have never argued and Amy was on Mary's prayer list. From their first meeting in  'Zazzy' when Amy played along with Mary's strategy to get Sheldon out of his cat obsession, to when Mary showed her how to yell at Sheldon after the Lenny wedding, they've always seemed to get along well enough. I thought they liked each other. Mary chose Amy to have her family ring and persuaded Sheldon to hang on to it when he thought everything was over.

Exactly because Amy works with brains all the time, she can get the romance behind the gift. Because she knows what orbitofrontal cortex is in charge of and what does that lighting up means:)

Yeah, Shamy have always been like that. They have an absolutely touching/romantic moment, and then they ruin it by Sheldon saying something ridiculous. That's just the way TPTB writes the couple. I think it might be for comedy purpose.

I think it was the comic book regeneration 8.15. Sheldon told Penny about Shamydoing the secret puzzles on her and Leonard. Penny told Amy and they went to 4a. Sheldon wouldn't let them in because he had no pants on. It was the same episode  Raj and Leonard saw Nathan Fillon.
