MRI taught to predict the future behavior of people

MRI taught to predict the future behavior of people

Looking tomogram of the brain can predict how people will behave in a particular situation, the scientists said.

Researchers from the University of California at Los Angeles found that using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can predict what actions people make in the future, reports Singularity Hub.

To do so, to analyze blood flow in areas of the prefrontal cortex and precuneus brain hemispheres.

Total experiments was attended by 20 people - 10 men and 10 women. During the study they were shown on the tomograph announcement about the usefulness of sunscreen, and then asked to predict how often they would use cream next week. In this case all the subjects were issued with a tube of cream.

The following week, scientists have observed for participants in the experiment. It turned out that a correct forecast given only half of the subjects. The researchers then checked the data scanner and found that the tomogram of the brain has given a correct prediction in 75% of cases.

Researchers believe that the method of predicting MRI can be used in advertising, marketing, education, and law enforcement system - it will allow, for example, to determine how prone to relapse offender released from prison.
