My group has already posted our final project, a report on the physics of mind-reading, but I wanted to share a few recent news articles on the subject. Mind-reading research continues to be a hot topic!
- An EEG sleep study suggests that people may have unique brainwave patterns — perhaps, in the future, these could be used for identification, or to diagnose mental disorders.
- Brain-computer interfaces are also advancing: Patients use ECoG electrodes to control a computer!
- If other people are trying to read your mind, maybe you can learn to control your thoughts using real-time fMRI feedback.
