    Default World's first 'thought images' seen on screen

    By James Sherwood

    Asking 'shall we watch a film?' could soon be replaced by 'shall we watch a dream?' For the first time, researchers have successfully reproduced images on a PC screen that were captured inside a human brain.

    According to several online sources, Japan's ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories first showed a group of test subjects the six individual letters that make up the word 'neuron'.

    Then by measuring brain activity – specifically, activity in the brain’s visual cortex – ATR’s researchers were able to reproduce each of the letters, from each of the subjects, on a PC screen.

    The Kyoto-based lab said in a statement that it was the first time that it had ever been possible to visualise what people saw directly from their brain activity.

    But where will the researchers go from here? ATR added that the technology may make it possible to, one day, record and replay subjective images that people perceive as dreams.

    So no more forgetting what that weird dream was less than 30 seconds after you wake up.

    Wow. This is a scary concept indeed. Should ruin my life if my wife can ever afford one.

    Amazing and scary concept.

    Has anyone ever seen this film? [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] It's not that bad and the concept of being able to record emotions and memories is quite interesting.

    This take on the recording idea is one of my all time favourite movies. The last 10-15 minutes are amazing:

    It sounds like something out of Fringe.
    There are 3 types of people in the world - those who make things happen, those who watch things happen; and those who wondered what happened.
