Brain imaging to making mind reading possible

New research will soon make it possible to analyze your own brain.

Jack Gallant, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Berkeley University in California, has been able to take readings of an individual’s brain function to reconstruct images and language, according to a new ABC report.

Using MRI technology, researchers have been able to see how the brain encodes or represents information about the world. With the right brain data, people could examine their brains, inner thoughts and feelings like never before.

“To my mind the most interesting decoder that we can create in the immediate future is something that would decode internal speech, the little man or woman in your head that talks to you all the time,” Gallant told ABC.
