Scientists Can Listen to Thoughts

Posted: Updated:

it sounds like science fiction but researchers have figured out how to listen to thoughts.

A new study at Berkeley tracked brain activity as people listened to normal conversation.

Researchers looked at that activity and were able to predict the words a person was thinking.

Doctors say this could be a huge step for people who can't speak, like patients who've suffered a stroke or have Lou Gehrig's disease.
