Brain scanning may be used in security checks
www.guardian.co.uk...

The Home Office, meanwhile, has confirmed rapid expansion plans of automated facial recognition......Passengers holding the latest generation of passports travelling through Manchester and Stansted are already being checked by facial-recognition cameras.

The holy grail of the biometrics industry is a scanning mechanism that is socially acceptable in an era of mass transit and 100 per cent accurate. Researchers are eager to produce 'non-contact' biometric systems that can check any individual's identity at a distance.

TheGuardian puts "Brain scanning" in the title and the first paragraph.. and makes no furhter mention of it at all?

Brain scans are usually done with MRI or EEG, both methods take a lot of time. MRI is very expensive as well, and (most?) MRI machines require you to lie down for a couple of minutes to get accurate results.

If they're referring to the facial pattern recognition - it recognizes individuals based on their facial pattern, not what their brain is doing.
