Neurobiologists have created video from dreams: what does it mean for science and ordinary people?

A team of neuroscientists from the National University of Singapore and the Chinese University of Hong Kong has developed a process that can generate video from brain scans. Their discovery could break new ground in the study of the brain and help people capture their dreams, which in 90% of cases are forgotten in the first minutes after awakening.

Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and Stable Diffusion technology, which creates images from text descriptions, the team obtained smooth, high-quality videos. Although fMRI captures images of brain activity every few seconds, which creates a challenge for video creation, the team achieved an 85% accuracy rate for motion-driven videos.

This discovery can help not only in the study of the brain, but also in people’s daily lives. For example, in the future we can ask a smart gadget to show us the dreams we had a week ago. In addition, people who remember their dreams can get more information about themselves and their psychology.

However, this discovery also raises concerns. If technology is able to tap into our minds and extract images of our thoughts, it could pose a threat to privacy and security. What measures would be taken to protect personal information in such a case?

Despite the risks, this new technology holds great potential for science and people’s daily lives. Neurobiologists continue to research this topic, and we may soon learn even more about how our brains and dreams work.
