    Researchers can now reconstruct your memory of someone's face

    Using only data from an fMRI scan, researchers led by a Yale University undergraduate have accurately reconstructed images of human faces as viewed by other people.

    “It is a form of mind reading,” said Marvin Chun, professor of psychology, cognitive science and neurobiology and an author of the paper in the journal Neuroimage.

    The increased level of sophistication of fMRI scans has already enabled scientists to use data from brain scans taken as individuals view scenes and predict whether a subject was, for instance, viewing a beach or city scene, an animal or a building.

    “But they can only tell you they are viewing an animal or a building, not what animal or building,” Chun said. “This is a different level of sophistication.”

    This image was provided by the researchers.


    I have a lot to say about this terrifying/fascinating article, but I'm pretty sure it's already all been said by Isaac Asimov, Philip K. Dick and Harlan Ellison. So I'll just run away waving my arms like I'm on fire.

    Why, I can smile, and murder while I smile,
    And cry 'Content' to that which grieves my heart,
    And wet my cheeks with artificial tears,
    And frame my face to all occasions.
    I can add colours to the chameleon,
    Change shapes with Proteus for advantages,
    And set the murderous Machiavel to school.
    Can I do this, and cannot get a crown?

    This is excellent news! Now I can reconstruct every single pair of boobies I have ever seen in my life for documentation purposes.

    That is the first thing I thought of...can they reconstruct the best sex I ever had too?
