Breakthrough: Pictures Decoded From Memories Using MRI
Scientists Use Brain Imaging to Reveal the Movies in Our Mind
Imagine tapping into the mind of a coma patient, or watching one’s own dream on YouTube. With a cutting-edge blend of brain imaging and computer simulation, scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, are bringing these futuristic scenarios within reach.
Using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and computational models, UC Berkeley researchers have succeeded in decoding and reconstructing people’s dynamic visual experiences — in this case, watching Hollywood movie trailers. – More here
