Brain Scans to Spy on Thoughts?


Researchers say the use of brain scans in some death row trials in the United States could be expanded into the United Kingdom, where they might be used by police to detect whether a suspect is lying or is planning a crime.

Dr. Burkhard Schafer of the University of Edinburgh says other privacy concerns for brain scans include exploitation by employers to detect lying on résumés or by companies trying to analyze their customers´ preferences.

The scans are now so advanced that they can be used to determine things a person likes and doesn´t like, and reveal fears and anxieties. There are presently no guidelines for their acceptable use.

if someone actually can do this, then they also can insert ideas, behavior etc .. no to mention stealing ideas and blocking creativity.

  This technology...  
is really quite limited, it is no better then a sort of polygraph test on the brain, if a person wants to and has a rough idea how it works, they could easily fake it. The brain is far too complex for such ham handed systems to work with any sort of specificity or accuracy.

  Before its hits general public  
The general public should use it on their bosses,CEO´s,Elected leaders, and officials.....

Just to see if it works.Because some how these devices only work on the workers and not people who can afford 100 lawyers.
