This is cool; from an article published in the November issue of Neuron:

[i]n the latest development in the field of neuroimaging, researchers have watched the brain of someone watching an image, and were actually able to perform reasonable reconstructions of the image.

The article goes on to say that researchers are interested to use this technology to watch peoples’ dreams.  I wonder how long it will be until they can put the images in to the brain rather than read them…
