Ever wondered what your brain is thinking? I'm sure we all have. Now, thanks to the creative collaboration and ideas of Adam Gazzaley, his "glass brain" might just allow us to do so. Using neuroscience research, technology and inspiration from his family, Gazzaley's newest project involves a helmet that can read your brain.
The helmet device used to look into one's brain is called Glass Brain. It was meant to help people understand more about how the brain works and connect technology with neuroscience. When worn, electrodes on the helmet use MRI technology to create a vivid picture of the brain activity onto the designated screen. The creators explained how "each color that lights up represents source power and connectivity in a different frequency band (theta, alpha, beta gamma) and the golden lines are white matter anatomical fiber tracts." A demonstration of its functionality was presented at the South by Southwest event in Austin this past week.
Basically, the helmet device combines scanning, recording and virtual reality of the brain in real-time for us to observe. The display is not as precise to say it can show you every thought you're having, it's more so a way of tracking your brain activity. This is helpful for people with mental disorders to help them better understand their brains, their problems, and hopefully ways to help fix those problems. Whether you decide you want to look at your brain or not, continue to stay charged with a Juno Power battery.
