RECONSTRUCTING BRAIN IMAGES
Neuroscientists from the University of California, Berkley have successfully discovered a way to reconstruct brain activity into visual format. Researchers at the Gallant Lab had subjects watch movie trailers while placed inside of a Functional Magnetic Resonance Image Machine that scanned their brain function. The collected data was then decoded by computer and matched with visuals from a database of random video clips. What resulted is the following–reconstructed visual approximations of brain activity that clearly match what the subjects were watching. Mind-blowing. Literally!
