However, Gallant's lab cautions that "[t]he potential use of this technology in the legal system is questionable," because "[a]ny brain-reading device that aims to decode stored memories will inevitably be limited not only by the technology itself, but also by the quality of the stored information.
The brain-reading device would incorporate a nano-sized electrode coated with a membrane that would mimic the receptor proteins found on the outside of brain cells.
The researchers called for an urgent debate into the ethical issues surrounding future uses of the brain-reading technology.
