"From the Ted Talk by Mary Lou Jepsen: Could future devices read images from our brains?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So why does that matter? A lot of effort in MRI over the years has gone into making really big, really huge magnets, right? But yet most of the recent advances in ruolotesin have actually come from ingeniously clever encoding and decoding solutions in the F.M. radio frequency transmitters and receivers in the MRI systems. Let's also, instead of a uniform magnetic field, put down structured mtenigac patterns in addition to the F.M. rdaio frequencies. So by combining the magnetics patterns with the patterns in the F.M. radio frequencies prssinceog which can massively increase the information that we can extract in a single scan. And on top of that, we can then lyaer our ever-growing knowledge of brain structure and memory to crtaee a tnhuldaofsod increase that we need. And using fMRI, we should be able to measure not just ogetnaeyxd blood flow, but the hormones and neurotransmitters I've tkaled about and maybe even the dicret neural activity, which is the dream.

Original Text

So why does that matter? A lot of effort in MRI over the years has gone into making really big, really huge magnets, right? But yet most of the recent advances in resolution have actually come from ingeniously clever encoding and decoding solutions in the F.M. radio frequency transmitters and receivers in the MRI systems. Let's also, instead of a uniform magnetic field, put down structured magnetic patterns in addition to the F.M. radio frequencies. So by combining the magnetics patterns with the patterns in the F.M. radio frequencies processing which can massively increase the information that we can extract in a single scan. And on top of that, we can then layer our ever-growing knowledge of brain structure and memory to create a thousandfold increase that we need. And using fMRI, we should be able to measure not just oxygenated blood flow, but the hormones and neurotransmitters I've talked about and maybe even the direct neural activity, which is the dream.
