Brain Scans Can Read Memories

20100316_Brain Scan Can Read MemoriesIt’s scary. A recent study has shown that scientists can determine what people are thinking about by looking at a brain scan. The subjects of this study were asked to view a number of short films and then to think about the films. Current capabilities are relatively limited, but I can only imagine how the technology to access memories that we all have within us will evolve over the next few years. Until then, there is always the Creative Memories StoryBook to preserve memories. For more details on the original study see Traces of the Past: Computer Algorithm ‘Reads’ Memories.
