Starting a few years ago I began to wonder if it would be possible to record what you saw like a video. Or keep track of all of the great and fleating thoughts that you had throughout the day, without having to write them all down. What if you could take an image that you created in your imagination and make it come to life without the need to have great fine motor skills. That would be great for minds like mine which are creative but forgetful and lack some of the skills required to express or recreate your thoughts and ideas.
Apparently research being conducted in japan at ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories is working on solving this problem. As of right now they can only roughly recreate black and white images viewed by a person. But maybe the ability to read neurotransmisions and rectreate there significance digitally is not an acheivement that should be prefaced with the preposition “Only”.
