What's that movie where they worked out a way to grab an image from your brain or your retina or somesuch and thus possibly determine the last person you saw, who was probably your murderer? Well, scientists have actually figured out how to do this. Kinda.
Not exactly like they did it in the movie, of course, but, according to Wired Science, scientists are one step closer to knowing what you've seen by reading your mind. And you don't have to be dead for them to do it. That's a relief.
Practical applications are a long way off (they always say that) but the technique centres on translating recorded patterns of neural activity into graphical representations. But of course.
