Visual Image Reconstruction using fMRI

Mind-reading is an exciting topic. Modern fMRI(functional magnetic resonance imaging) technique are making mind-reading coming true. Using fMRI combine with modern machine learning algrithoms(MVPA), we can now decode some infomation from people’s brain activities. I repeated some previous prominence research about that topic in Badong Chen’s lab, such like fMRI signal decoding from primary visual cortex (V1) and reconstructing pattern image from fMRI signal (Miyawaki et al., 2008). Moreover, I improved the accuracy of the reconstruction by ~ 4% (from about 80% to about 84%), using the improved MVPA method with SVM classifier (Norman et al., 2006).     Read more
