WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A computer has been trained to "read" people's minds by looking at scans of their brains as they thought about specific words, researchers said on Thursday.

They calibrated the computer by having nine student volunteers think of 58 different words, while imaging their brain activity.

I bet I could speed this research along if they let me pick the 58 words.
