ITS A FEW CATS!!!! yea all life is precious etc etc....yawn but its fine...they said they dint feel anything!!!!! the cats arent walking round with a chip on their shoulder toward the scientists or have brain damage!

besides ooo what if a cat died!
god cats die all the time, dogs, cars, natural causes, earthquakes, more cars, fallin down holes etc....not a big deal. stop bummin this one thing just because its new and unusual. All over the world thousands of animals are cruelly, inhumanely held and tested on, many painfully without anestetic etc, most of which die, so this is the most humane case of animal testing i seen!

Besides aint even animal testing!! so they stuck a few electrodes here and there.........BIG BLOOMIN DEAL....

I for one find this an extremely AWSOME scientific advancement

Actually you made me laugh!!!
Very Funny!!! You have a way with words! It is awesome, actually. Seriously, don't alot of humans die everyday, fall in holes, get hit by cars, get put into slavery, tortured, beheaded, etc...what's a few humans???
Just kidding Ya! Yeah, I do eat meat...wish I didn't. My spouse tells the vegetarians protesting meat consumption that's there is nothing more cute than a big-eyed baby hereford heifer or bull before they send it off to the slaughter for veal.--Sorry--off topic, I know

the funny thing is the trees look like trees, but the person looks like a lump.







Interesting.

I would like to see a comparison of animals. Does this person still work on this? You would think this would be a lifes work, not some dumpy projet that gets no fame.

god give it chance! its not developed and refined yet, and even so we're talking about minds, not computers. it cant be an exact science......

Ok maybe what i said was a tad crude, but whats a cat with a headacha in the grand scheme of things. Human life is obviously more precious to us.
that more mature of a comment???

Viewing memories or dreams is a long way off since we still can't point to any part of the brain and say "This is where your memories are stored".

We know where the camera is and can tap into it and see what it sees, but we still can't find the bookcase full of DVDs :p

This could be used to see if your eyes/brain is properly color calibrated by simply having a computer look each pixel and tell you the RGB values =)

Can you post the source?
If anything, this makes sense to only be the tranmission of electrical signals throught the optic nerve and then filtered (very nicely) by some other program

I have seen other nerve impulse readins before, but they never form an image. Usually, if anything you only see amplitude vs. time readings on an ampmeter.
As far as I know (and I am persuing my Ph.D. in neuroscience) electrical 'touching' can not elicit an image. It is usually the filtering of our brain that tells us that a certain pattern of electrical imputs is recognized as a pattern that looks like a face.

As for the study using the cats alone, sure it's a little cruel but it usually has some good in how it can be used for human benefit. Cats have eyes and brains that are pretty similar to humans. The cats used in any study I have done or known about are usually given to us from Death Row of animal shelters who otherwise be putting them to a death somewhat faster than what we would be doing. While I can not say that some procedures lab animals go through are not comfortable, I can say that in the overwhealming majority, all is done to make sure they are not in pain.

Hmm, I have a cat (see avatar) and I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a brain (she is insane) so this wouldn't work on her!


(becomes serious now) This reminds me of a movie I saw called 'The Final Cut', where people got these implants at birth and when they died, people could watch their memories like a movie. I could see this being useful in law enforcement, but it could be horribly abused. The privacy issues are huge; it doesn't take much imagination to see how even if we have no criminal activity to hide, there are other personal aspects of our lives that others have no business being able to see, like stuff that happens in the bedroom, for example.

Of course, this hasn't been done on people yet, but if it can be done on cats, it should be possible for people, although quite likely more complicated, since the human brain is more complex. I think that any possible benefits from such a technology are probably dwarfed by the potential abuse that could come from it.
