Reconstructing brain visions into video

Amazing work from Gallant Lab at UC Berkeley.

Quantitative modeling of human brain activity can provide crucial insights about cortical representations and can form the basis for brain decoding devices.

Recent functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have modeled brain activity elicited by static visual patterns and have reconstructed these patterns from brain activity.

In short: images can be reconstructed from brain waves – read more.

The left clip is a segment of a Hollywood movie trailed that the subject viewed while in the magnet. The right clip shows the reconstruction of this segment from brain activity measured using fMRI.
