It's strange how one day I will hear it on NPR and then 2 days later I see it on Huff post... You guys should really start stating where you are really getting your stories.

How long before we have our thoughts scanned at airports for our "security?"

"But, Morris stated, the computer algorithm used to decode memories is not actually 'reading' thoughts. '[I]t merely distinguishes one [memory] from another,' he said."

Yet another in the continuing series of misleading, misinformative, and utterly sensationalist HuffPo headlines - having nothing whatsoever to do with the actual content.

Agreed - see my comment below.

If anyone from the editing desk actually reads these comments, then, ahem, "We don't need sensationalism in order to link to a story. Just run a factual headline. We are grown-ups."

There isn't much we can do about the situation.

Good to see I'm not alone. Some of HP's headlines viz content, well, shall we say, surprise me.

I wish they would develop one for my dog. He looks awfully deep, sometimes.

That would be so awesome! I'm actually amazed at how well we can communicate with our dogs in the first place even without help.

Instead of using research to find ways of increasing energy flux density so we can make it possible for man to live one day in outer space, we keep going down the way of 'low orbit' nonsense like i-pads and this quackery of brain scans.

No machinery could possibly read my thoughts.

You might as well see a palm reader or psychic.

Expect this technology at airports, court houses, stadiums and probably malls.

WATCH this DHS training video

It's amazing that people want more security, less liberty, checkpoints and cancer causing naked body scanners. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

That's why there will be a revolution my friend.
It's not JUST the $$ being stolen, it's the games they are playing with people.
Slowly and incrementally.......
The sheeple like being slow roasted i guess.

You got that right. There has been a revolution going on for years now. It's been a revolution of the mind of sorts. I do fear a bloody revolution is coming though. Maybe a miracle will happen and the people will shut off their TVs and unite in what's right.

Fanned!

"Brain Scan Can Read People's Thoughts, Researchers Say"

"...But, Morris stated, the computer algorithm used to decode memories is not actually 'reading' thoughts. '[I]t merely distinguishes one [memory] from another,' he said."

Which is it, HuffPost? Who is editing the science desk?
02:22 PM on 03/13/2010
Apparently, the science desk is being manned by a "psychic" who normally writes for the National Enquirer.

With HuffPost one must always read between the lines. HuffPost headlines are "People"esque hype.

fMRI can scan and demonstrate what part of teh brain is functioning. Different emotional reactions "light up" different sections of the brain as do different body motions. Quite remarkable. Endless possibilities.

Scans should be mandatory for all politicians monthly - then we'll find out who's paying them off.

At the accuracy rate they're postulating, it's better than waterboarding at discerning the truth.......and even though waterboarding is apparently 'not' torture, how could ANY politician complain about having a non-invasive scan done on them instead.?

Someday they really will be able to do that. I imagine torture enthusiasts won't be happy about it.

Someday we'll be able to record our own dreams. It will be fun to watch them later, with our fully conscious minds. Some dreams are really fantastic.

Most Americans have nothing to worry about with this being a privacy violation; they hardly have a thought that isn't as superfluous as who will win American Idol this season.

The premise of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind could become reality.

So the doctor can scan my thought and find out what I really think of him? Like "Does this dude really know what he is doing?", "I am going to sue him if he is not helping."...

It wouldn't be very interesting to scan the guys' thoughts: "Man I'd like to do her", "Whoa that's a nice r@ck", "What a nice @ss", over and over would get a little old after a while.

But beyond the catchphrases might reveal something far more interesting.

One of mine is, "Wow, why can't I turn these emotions and lusts off? There are so many more interesting things in life!" Though I won't deny I too think the usual "nice r@ck", "huge honkin' sausage", and the rest of the taglines too...

"huge honkin' sausage" really?
