Researchers Decode What the Brain Is Thinking It's not mind-reading yet, but scientists have demonstrated a way to reconstruct words that people are thinking based on the brain waves generated by their thoughts. Brian Pasley was the lead researcher on a project at UC Berkeley's Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute . The brain activity caused by words was analyzed to determine what surgical patients were thinking. Pasley explains how it works and what might be next.
