Do you ever get frustrated by your inability to verbally communicate the brilliant design concepts you see in your mind's eye? Well, Japanese researchers may have come up with a way to solve that little lost in translation problem. A team at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Kyoto, Japan has successfully processed and displayed images transmitted directly from the human brain, tagging along as the eye's retina recognizes an image, then converts it to electrical signals that get sent to the brain's visual cortex.

Do you ever get frustrated by your inability to verbally communicate the brilliant design concepts you see in your mind’s eye? Well, Japanese researchers may have come up with a way to solve that little lost in translation problem.

The technology could eventually be used to record and replay images floating around in there – like dreams – by measuring brain activity
