Scientists reconstructed brain's vision into video in a historical experiment [Video]
posted November 15 2011 6:48.31 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Truly unbelievable! UC Berkeley scientists have developed a system to decode visual activity in our brains and reconstruct it as digital video clip. This process will eventually allow us to reconstruct out own dreams on a PC!

this is a major leap toward reconstructing internal imagery. We are opening a window into the movies in our minds

Says Professor Jack Gallant-UC Berkeley neuroscientist and coauthor of the research published in the journal Current Biology.

This is how it works. Three different people were used. They were exposed to two different groups of Hollywood movie trailers, as the fMRI system recorded the brain's blood flow through their brains' visual cortex. The readings were fed into a computer program. The results were divided into three-dimensional pixels units called voxels (volumetric pixels). This process effectively decodes the brain signals generated by moving pictures, connecting the shape and motion information from the movies to specific brain actions.As the session progressed, the computer "learned" more and more how the brain translates what the eyes see.

Truly amazing, a remarkable step in decoding our brain!
