How Neuroscientists Are Learning To Read Our Minds By Joshua A. Krisch

New study uses resting brain scans to predict how individual brains would respond to specific tasksBy Joshua A. Krisch Neuroscientists are not mind-readers, but they’re coming close according to a new study published in the journal Science. With little more than a functional MRI scan, scientists have managed to program a computer model that can predict the specific path that that individual’s brain will likely take when performing a given task. This tool could eventually be used to conduct top-level neuroscience with infants and people with disabilities. “We show that we can essentially predict how people will use their brains,” coauthor Saad Jbabdi of Oxford University told The Scientist.
