Scanning the brain and probing the mind

Scanning the brain and probing the mind

This video was recorded at British Counsil Slovenia - Science - Café Scientifique . Functional neuroimaging offers insight into the working of human mind and brain. It is used to study how the brain function changes in different neurological and psychiatric diseases. But can it be also used to explore the mysteries of love, to determine what people like, as a lie detector, or as an interface between the brain and the computer? Are we finally able to read the human mind?
