No one can hide. The Pulpits of the Helliban shall tell on you, fornicator.

Dust off the Tin Foil hat. Machines can now see what you see and know what you imagine. Yes, it is now possible to capture and display what’s going on your head by mapping cerebral blood flow in the visual cortex.

Soon to be published in the journal Neuron, Japan’s ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories have developed new brain analysis technology that can reconstruct the images inside a person’s mind and display them on a computer monitor.

  1. The technology may soon make it possible to view other people’s dreams while they sleep.
  2. “In as little as 10 years, advances in this field of research may make it possible to read a person’s thoughts with some degree of accuracy”, says Dr. Cheng.
  3. Kamitani says, “This technology can also be applied to senses other than vision. In the future, it may also become possible to read feelings and complicated emotional states.”
