Scientists extract images directly from brain ::: Pink Tentacle


ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories

They did it with fMRI bloodflow so it was not even necessary to neural decode.

      Geez John ... ... coulda turned the darn filter off!

      "read" our minds? Greeeeaaat ... not ... if it was to be
      used ONLY for good (lol .. yer right) then there would be
      many benefits ... alas I see many more things this will be
      used for and none of them are in the common man`s best
      interest

      No tin foil hat needed for that view ... just look at history :rolleyes:

    Well then - we just need to study this image for them to lift out of our heads. Maybe they will get a clue.

      If this technology gets into the wrong hands it could be dangerous. My wife would kill me.

        I'd say with this kind of technology, war would break out and everyone would be dead.

    I'm off to by my mind reading proof hat. Don't want anyone to know what I'm thinking Although I think gareth could be arrested for some of his thoughts.

    Seriously - Reasons why this technology is cool and essential.

    1. Neurofeedback training

    You can use it to train your imagination / memory to be super clear and sharp.

    2. Reverse engineering of brain function

    This will enable us to build superior computers and to build neuro interfaces.

    3. Psychiatry and Psychotherapy

    It would be an incredible tool for people in psychological science.

    4. Neural uploading

    In not such a long time it will be possible to transfer your mind to a computer. Maybe in 30 - 40 years time.

      Yes, that's exactly what I looked like when I looked at myself in the mirror.

      I think it's creepy and the ultimate invasion or privacy. And it 40 years we will either be too old to care or dead.

    Darn. I made a bet that someone got on your case for saying "Jap" before I checked to find out. Nope. I was happy to see I lost the bet actually - but then again I lost the best. Hmm.

      That will happen if tech. like this became common. You are under arrest for thinking _____________.Take this technology and flush it. Those hats to prevent mind reading will sell like crazy
