Futures in Biotech 44: Cogito Ergo Sum by fMRI

Looking directly into the human mind with fMRI technology.


What does the statement:"I think, therefore I am" used by Rene Descartes really mean? What if you could look into the human mind with the most sophisticated instrumentation available? Well in brief, this is what John Gabrieli does in his lab at MIT. He studies memory, thought, and emotion by functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging. If only Descartes had an fMRI in the1630-40s!
