UC Berkeley Neuroscientists Can Read Our Minds

Imagine a device that projects a person’s subconscious thought into translatable signals on a computer screen — a machine that might allow someone entry into another person’s dreams. Sounds like a tool straight out of George Orwell’s doom-and-gloom vision for a mind-controlling dystopia. Yet according to an article from Nature journal, such a remote mind-reader may one day exist. UC Berkeley neuroscientists have developed a remote scanner that can pick up signals from the frontal lobe, determining what parts of the brain respond to light, touch, and sound by quickening blood flow.
