Brain-Reading Device Deciphers Internal Thoughts With Surprising Precision

Scientists have created a device that can read a person's brain signals and translate their internal speech, at least on a modest level.

Scientists are inching closer to making telepathy a reality. In a new study published this week, researchers claim to have created a device that can read and translate a person’s internal speech. The findings only show modest success so far, however, and there are still many hurdles remaining before such devices can have practical applications.

In recent years, scientists have advanced technology that reads and interprets the complex brain signals that allow us to talk to another person—tech that has made it possible for people with speech difficulties to regain some amount of communication ability. Much of this work so far has involved translating a person’s partially vocalized or mimed speech into words or audio. But scientists at the California Institute of Technology appear to have broken new ground in this emerging field, creating a brain–machine interface (BMI) device that can translate internal speech, at least on a rudimentary level. https://gizmodo.com/brain-machine-inter ... 1851476460

Interesting. I remember reading about something like this, but it was done with cats. Using a device, they were able to see what the cat was seeing, how the cat saw it. I wonder if this is the same technology being used?
