Can a brain scan show what you've heard?

A brain scan that allows you to see what sound a person has heard. Researchers from Maastricht University have recently achieved a world first by reconstructing heard sound based on a person’s brain activity. 'A better understanding of how the brain registers and filters sounds will also enable us to filter out background noise in hearing aids in the future', says research leader Elia Formisano. The results were recently published in the leading scientific journal PNAS.
