How Technology May Soon "Read" Your Mind
60 Minutes: Incredible Research Lets Scientists Get A Glimpse At Your Thoughts
Jan. 4, 2009

(CBS) How often have you wondered what your spouse is really thinking? Or your boss? Or the guy sitting across from you on the bus? We all take as a given that we'll never really know for sure. The content of our thoughts is our own - private, secret, and unknowable by anyone else. Until now, that is.

As correspondent Lesley Stahl reports, neuroscience research into how we think and what we're thinking is advancing at a stunning rate, making it possible for the first time in human history to peer directly into the brain to read out the physical make-up of our thoughts, some would say to read our minds.

I've heard of 'functional MRIs' before (maybe on an episode of "House"), but didn't realize how true it was! Kinda creepy...
