These are the first pictures from an extraordinary experiment which has probed what it is like to look through the eyes of another creature.
As reported on BBC News Online last week, a team of US scientists have wired a computer to a cat's brain and created videos of what the animal was seeing.
By recording the electrical activity of nerve cells in the thalamus, a region of the brain that receives signals from the eyes, researchers from the University of California at Berkeley were able to view these shapes.
The team used what they describe as a "linear decoding technique" to convert the signals from the stimulated cells into visual images.
Dr Yang Dan, Assistant Professor of Neurobiology at UC Berkeley, Fei Li and Garrett Stanley, now Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Harvard University conducted 11 experiments.

Many people say animals are more prone to seeing the paranormal (ghosts).
Could these concept in fact prove or dissprove this thought?
