If an fMRI can do noting, so can you

MRI scanner sees emotions flickering across an idle mind

"It's getting to be a bit like mind-reading," said Kevin LaBar, a professor of psychology and neuroscience at Duke. "Earlier studies have shown that functional MRI can identify whether a person is thinking about a face or a house. Our study is the first to show that specific emotions like fear and anger can be decoded from these scans as well."

Alternate title: Noting - Be your own mind reader.
