A persons’ memory can be read simply by looking at electrical activity of their brain, according to a study published in Current Biology.
Scientists can now determine where someone imagines him/herself to be (in realtion to an entire maze or map for example) without asking him/her. They say their study proved that memories relating to location or imagining a location can be “read” by a brain scanner.
One of scientists who conducted the study says this is a step closer towards the idea mind reading. Dr. Hannabis says in at least ten years technology will be closer to making it might be possible to use a brain scanner to solve and fight crime.
