That's scientism.
I generally found former President Obama to be a pragmatist with respect to science. Here he is speaking on the BRAIN Initiative as it relates to American innovation.

Low-cost EEG can now be used to reconstruct images of what you see

Quote:
A new technique developed by University of Toronto Scarborough neuroscientists has, for the first time, used EEG detection of brain activity in reconstructing images of what people perceive.

The new technique “could provide a means of communication for people who are unable to verbally communicate,” said Dan Nemrodov, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow in Assistant Professor Adrian Nestor’s lab at U of T Scarborough. “It could also have forensic uses for law enforcement in gathering eyewitness information on potential suspects, rather than relying on verbal descriptions provided to a sketch artist.”

Growing brains in labs: why it's time for an ethical debate

Quote:
Writing in the journal Nature on Wednesday, 17 experts argue that it is time to consider what guidelines might be needed for dealing with lumps of human brain tissue, because the more complex they become the greater the chance that they gain consciousness, feel pleasure, pain and distress, and deserve rights of their own.

Newsweek | Brain Holography: We may soon be able to edit our memories and sensations with this new tech

Quote:
What if we had the ability to fool our brain into thinking that we’d experienced something that never happened?

While this may sound far-fetched, neuroscientists at the University of California-Berkeley are developing a technique that could do just that by manipulating electrical activity in the brain.

The technique is called holographic projection and it involves a piece of equipment known as a holographic brain modulator, which uses flashes of light to activate or suppress neurons—or nerve cells—in the brain in a way that mimics real patterns of brain activity. By doing this, you can trick the brain into thinking something it hasn’t felt or sensed before.

THis is not a new technology though, there was talk of using something similar against the islamic fighters on the battlefield back when Bush was in office. The way it was described in the article, they could 'beam' something out across the sky which would appear to be Muhammad himself telling the fighters to stop fighting, they would see his image and hear a voice in their heads as well.

A lot of these tactics came from the MK Ultra project back in the 80s and 90s.
