 5 brainwaves patterns and their mental functions (credit: Neurofeedback Alliance)

Scientists can see into your brain.

By studying the brain activity, researchers can piece together the image in your head. It's remarkable. Some see the incredible potential for, say, painlessly interrogating suspects. Some worry about the possible invasion of privacy. If they can see into your head, that's the end of a private life.

I don't worry. Strap a mind-reader to my cranium and all you'll see is static, or maybe the vertical, multicolored lines of a TV test pattern, or maybe an old Simpsons episode running on a loop. If a scientist tried to read my mind, other scientists would insist that they change the channel.
