Brain scan: Scientists have developed a mind-reading technique

Scientists have developed a mind-reading technique which could one day allow them to take pictures of memories and dreams.

By comparing brain activity scans, they were able to correctly predict which of 120 pictures someone was focusing on in 90 per cent of cases.

The technique could one day form the basis of a machine to project the imagination on to a screen.

Professor Jack Gallant led the Californian research team.

Writing in the journal Nature, he said: "It may soon be possible to reconstruct a picture of a person's visual experience from measurements of brain activity alone.

"Imagine a general brainreading device that could reconstruct a picture of a person's visual experience at any moment in time."


Considering that by the time we usually hear about such inventions they have usually been in use by Military or other bodies for some time, let's imagine how really much more advanced this might actually be?

Wow something that will record my dreams and memories. That would be really cool. Maybe Gang Stalking targets could package the dreams and memories given to us as Targeted Individuals and deliver them as presents to those that have helped stalk and torture us. Kind of like the little gift given near the end of the movie the crow. (When Eric gives the memories he's been carrying around, all at once.) Maybe those who have helped form all these memories and dreams would like to have a taste of the fun memories that they have helped to create? Probably not.


Anyways on to other fun scientific news.

Tell me what you see.

On second thought, don't: A computer will soon be able to do it, simply by analyzing the activity of your brain.

That's the promise of a decoding system unveiled this week in Nature by neuroscientists from the University of California at Berkeley.

The scientists used a functional magnetic resonance imaging machine -- a real-time brain scanner -- to record the mental activity of a person looking at thousands of random pictures: people, animals, landscapes, objects, the stuff of everyday visual life. With those recordings the researchers built a computational model for predicting the mental patterns elicited by looking at any other photograph. When tested with neurological readouts generated by a different set of pictures, the decoder passed with flying colors, identifying the images seen with unprecedented accuracy.

"No one that I know would ever have guessed our decoder would do this well," study co-author Jack Gallant said.

As the decoder is refined, it could be used to explore the phenomenon of visual attention -- concentration on one part of a complicated scene -- and then to illuminate the dimly understood intricacies of the mind's eyes.

"One day it may even be possible to reconstruct the visual content of dreams," Gallant said.

After that, the decoding model could be harnessed for more visionary purposes: early warning systems for neurological diseases or interfaces that allow paralyzed people to engage with the world.

Other uses may not be so noble, such as marketing campaigns crafted for maximum mental penetration or invasions of mental privacy mounted in the name of fighting terrorism and crime.

Those technologies remain decades away, but researchers say it's not too soon to think about them, especially if research progresses at the pace set by this study.

Earlier decoders could only tell whether someone looked at a general type of image -- at a dog, for example -- but couldn't identify more specific photos, such as a small dog eating a bone. They've also been incapable of predicting what thought patterns an image would provoke.

The Berkeley model overcame both those limitations.



It's weird, but I have heard targets speak of things like this before. It's a subject that I have heard mentioned in the Targeted Individual community. People who have stated that the people harassing them were describing what they were looking at in real time. Interesting.

Anyways, it's always nice to keep up on the latest scientific mumbo jumbo. Imagine how the world will be shaped, or rather is probably already being shaped by these devices that we are just hearing about, but which have probably been around and available for some time now.

Guess you better start raiding your stash of tin foil, don't want them to read your mind!!!

Good suggestion, I however don't have a stash of tin foil contrary to popular beliefs, and this begs the questions would it work if I did?

Also why would anyone feel the need to read my thoughts, when I am more than happy to openly express them. Why over the last month I am sure I have expressed my love and sentiments for the system, and Gang Stalkers. So they don't need to read my mind. I will be more than happy to tell them what I think.

On to the next persons thoughts, dreams, ambitions, and if they don't like what they see, then they can just wipe the persons mind clean remotely and shove in there what they do like. See and then everyone is all happy.
