Researchers at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories succeeded in processing and displaying images directly from the human brain, they said in a study unveiled ahead of publication in the US magazine Neuron.
While the team for now has managed to reproduce only simple images from the brain, they said the technology could eventually be used to figure out dreams and other secrets inside people's minds.
Arcana: Madame Lapin: The essence of a soft brown bunny: fragrant notes of sweet honey, dry Atlas cedarwood, warm toast, buttermilk, and a subtle blend of spices.
In bottle: Sweet - honey and brown sugar.
On me: Very sweet. Cinnamon buns, almost.
Arcana: Fugue: An amnesiac haze of dark clove, spiced amber, sugary milk, white musk, nutmeg, and a drop of aged patchouli.
In bottle: Dark and spicy, but not overly heavy.
On me: It goes more sharp than spicy.
Villainess: Ginger Snapped: A slightly psychotic blend of sweet cinnamon, rich cardamom, spicy ginger, and a faint touch of innocent vanilla.
In bottle: Oooooh, spicy goodness.
On me: I am cookies. Specifically, gingersnaps. I am delicious.
Villainess: Jai Mahal: A lesser palace infused with the sweet scent of victory. 4 rich vanillas and tonka, Mysore sandalwood, bourbon and coconut. Expensive woods, incense and imported spices - cedar, amber, myrrh, cardamom and nutmeg.
In bottle: Sweet bourbon-and-coconut. Everything is sweet today!
On me: Oh wait - that's sour now. Ugh.
Wearing: Dia de los Muertos nightgown.
Reading: Behemoth: Seppuku by Peter Watts.
Writing: The last two parts of the Alanna story; then I can jump on story/poetry commisions, and then another story to actually sell. :)
Planning: Seeing The Slutcracker tonight with swashbucklr and devoken. Tomorrow, ioianthe's party and Elayna's friends caroling party. Will I get out to any other parties? Depends if I've got someone to take me. Sunday is a baby's first birthday party, then Adam's coworker's party. Then I fall down go boom.
This whole week has been a recovery week. The wedding and travel really knocked me out.
So what are you up to?
