A dream is a wish, desire, and is only a dream. Anyway, as the dreams and desires have their own secret, but what if everyone knew what he thinks? A group of researchers from Japan argues that the development of technology in the dreams and thoughts on a computer screen, it is not nothing but a mystery. Researchers from the ATR Neuroscience Computing Laboratory was able to re-image the brain, the first visual demonstration that people with the activities of the brain. This technology, however, that its intention on the screens, to print images directly from the human brain, including people in their minds, their dreams. After a brain computer control, that it was time for the computer to know the kitchen of your brain.

Scientists in Japan Use MRI Scanner to Read Dreams

Read Dreams using Modified MRI Machine

Scientists in Japan were able to turn an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) machine into a device capable of reading dreams. The MRI as we know it is used in medicine to perform a thorough examination of the body’s organs using magnetic technology and radio waves.

MRI in medicine is used to examine diseases such as cancer, stroke, damage to blood vessels in the brain, tumors, spinal cord injuries, disorders of the eye or inner ear, multiple sclerosis, and to detect head injuries.

The modified MRI machine can not only be used to read dreams but also to reconstruct dreams. When you wake up, you can replay the dream on the screen. In that case, no more forgetting the dream.

How Does It Work?

The ‘dream machine’ works by measuring brain activity while humans are sleeping. The data is then fed into an algorithm that reconstructs the dream. The reconstruction resulted in the playback of the dream.

To give you a clear understanding of this technology, think of a motorbike and the brain works in a pattern that appears each time the motorbike is visualized. Algorithms are used to tie the scanned data from the brain to the correspondingly correlated images.

Researchers in Japan admit that their technology is not perfect because its accuracy is around 60 percent. However, we must be optimistic that the technology will get even better in the future, and that the current technology is a good start for the advancement of dream-reading technology in the future.

The Hard Work Behind The Technology
The dream machine scientists have gone through a long series of stages. They first had to ask volunteers to look at still images in different colors. During this process, their modified machine mimics the elements of letters and images seen by the volunteers. Although vague, visuals can be seen on the monitor, similar to hypnosis. The next step is to find ways to visualize the images.
