Berkeley scientists make pictures from brainwaves

University of California, Berkeley, scientists have managed to create a close approximation of what our thoughts look like. First they mapped brain wave response to 18 million seconds of random YouTube videos. Then, patients viewed a series of videos, and those brain waves were matched with the correlating visuals from the first test.



from something I read somewhere and somebody else reminded me about it.

Wouldn't it be easier to just show a very fuzzy photo of a naked woman?

That would accurately reflect about 90% of all male brainwaves roughly 90% of the time. :P

Well, there was that composite photo of like ~20 years worth of Playboy centerfolds in one exposure that IIRC looked VERY similar.
You might have a point there.  ;)

P.S. Found the news link:
