"Reconstructing visual experiences from brain activity evoked by natural movies."

(Waiting for the next post in the physics series? Apologies. New academic year = teaching. Next post, on EPI, will be along within a few days...)

Gallant Lab strikes again!

Another shameless plug for fMRI at Berkeley! A study with the title of this post was published online today in Current Biology. Seems like it's generating as much media buzz as their previous study (Nature, 2008) using still images. Congratulations to Shinji, Joseph (An), Thomas and co. on another fine study. (And people said the Varian didn't work. Ha!)
