Program comprehension is an often evaluated, internal cognitive process. In neuroscience, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is used to visualize such internal cognitive processes. We propose an experimental design to measure program comprehension based on fMRI. In the long run, we hope to answer questions like What distinguishes good programmers from bad programmers? or What makes a good programmer? 1
