Brain-decoding software may someday aid in communication

Researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, have decoded brain waves to determine which images test subjects were viewing, according to a study published online Wednesday in the journal Nature. The findings may someday help people with disabilities use their thoughts as a means of communication. "Perhaps it will be possible for you to visually imagine an object, and then use a brain decoder to translate your underlying brain activity into an actual image that other people can see," said graduate student Kendrick Kay.
