fMRI-enabled mind-reading event, with Jack Gallant & Nita Farahany

On April 26, 2012, the CLB will host UC Berkeley’s Jack Gallant and Vanderbilt Law School’s Nita Farahany to discuss Dr. Gallant’s groundbreaking work using fMRI to decode and reconstruct people’s visual experiences.  To get a sense of Dr. Gallant’s work, take a look at the video above, which shows how Dr. Gallant has used fMRI to reconstruct what subjects are seeing as they watch movie clips.  Dr. Farahany will discuss the legal implications of technologies that can peer inside the human mind.

This event is free and open to the public, and will take place from 4:30-6:00 on April 26, 2012 in room 190 of Stanford Law School.  Please RSVP by sending me an email.
