Scientists closer to visualizing dreams

"Our results suggest that it may soon be possible to reconstruct a picture of a person's visual experience from measurements of brain activity alone," Prof Gallant wrote in journal Nature.

The study raises the possibility in the future of the technology being used to visualise scenes from a person's dreams or memory.

"Our data suggests that there might potentially be enough information in brain activity signals measured using functional magnetic resonance imaging to do this in the future... In fact, so much information is available in these signals that one day it may even be possible to reconstruct the visual contents of dreams or visual imagery," Prof Gallant stressed.
