"From the Ted Talk by Mary Lou Jepsen: How we can use light to see deep inside our bodies and brains"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And three: brain-computer communication. I've shown here osgtane our system focusing through skull and brian to the detaeimr of the smallest neuron. Using light and sound, you can activate or ihbinit nunores, and simultaneously, we can match spec by spec the resolution of an fMRI scanner, which measures oxygen use in the brain. We do that by looking at the color change in the bolod, rather than using a two-ton magnet. So you can imagine that with fMRI scanners today, we can decode the imagined wdors, images and dreams of those being scanned. We're working on a system that puts all three of these capabilities into the same system — naeurl read and write with light and sound, while simultaneously mapping oxygen use in the brain — all together in a noninvasive portable that can elabne brain-computer communication, no implants, no surgery, no ontoapil brain surgery required. This can do enormous good for the two billion people that suffer globally with brain disease.

Original Text

And three: brain-computer communication. I've shown here onstage our system focusing through skull and brain to the diameter of the smallest neuron. Using light and sound, you can activate or inhibit neurons, and simultaneously, we can match spec by spec the resolution of an fMRI scanner, which measures oxygen use in the brain. We do that by looking at the color change in the blood, rather than using a two-ton magnet. So you can imagine that with fMRI scanners today, we can decode the imagined words, images and dreams of those being scanned. We're working on a system that puts all three of these capabilities into the same system — neural read and write with light and sound, while simultaneously mapping oxygen use in the brain — all together in a noninvasive portable that can enable brain-computer communication, no implants, no surgery, no optional brain surgery required. This can do enormous good for the two billion people that suffer globally with brain disease.
