Neuroscience research might lead to identity verification through brainwaves

By Rawlson King Tweet April 20, 2016 –  Sarah Laszlo, a cognitive neuroscientist and an assistant professor at the State University of New York, Binghamton is exploring the use of brain readings as a security measure to prevent identity theft. Laszlo is exploring whether brain waves have advantages over other biometrics, including fingerprints or retinal scans. Benefits of brain readings include the fat that they cannot be copied surreptitiously or taken from someone who is deceased. In her lab, she uses human electrophysiology and computational modeling to study how reading is learned. Laszlo interweaves physiological and computational work in a symbiotic fashion, such that she interprets electrophysiological data in the context of computational models. Brain readings could prove a game-changer for the security industry, but can only be useful if they…
