Washington: Researchers have developed a new way to explore the human brain in virtual reality.
The system, which is developed by Philip Rosedale and Adam Gazzaley , neuroscientist at the University of California San Francisco, combines brain scanning, brain recording and virtual reality to allow a user to journey through a person's brain in real-time, CBS News reported.
Gazzaley said that people have never been able to step inside the structures of the brain to see it in this way and this system is biofeedback on the next level.
Rosedale made his wife a cap studded with electroencephalogram (EEG) electrodes that measure differences in electric potential in order to record brain activity, while he wore a virtual reality headset to explore her brain in 3D, as flashes of light displayed her brain activity from the EEG.
The glass brain didn't actually show Rosedale's wife was thinking, but Gazzaley's team ultimately hopes to get closer to decoding brain signals and displaying them using the virtual reality system.
