Mind reading no longer in sci-fi's realm!
It may seem like something from a science fiction but scientists claim they have found a way to read the human mind. Researchers at University of California-Los Angeles have developed what they call 'brain reading' method that uses past history to determine future cognitive patterns and
thought process, the Daily Mail reported.

The researchers compare the results to Google's predictive search capability, when the website guesses what search terms users are typing before they finish.

The study, led by author Ariana Anderson, a post-doctoral fellow in the Integrative Neuroimaging Technology lab at the university, was performed on smokers experiencing nicotine cravings.

During the study, MRI brain wave data was analysed to determine which regions of the brain and which neural networks are responsible for resisting nicotine addiction.
