Originally posted by WoodPushIt of course would not be from visual cues, there would have to be aural feedback as well. It could also be used say, if you are deathly afraid of the smell of death or something, I can see it being used with an olfactory generator to train you quickly to not be afraid of that smell. The general idea is the feedback of the Functional MRI shows how the brain is changing as a result of the inputs, whatever sense is involved, kinetec, visual, whatever.
I don't know how they get from this, to something like learning a language, like the article claims.
Learning an auditory skill with only visual input seems like a stretch.

I would love to learn languages with the help of a FMRI! Bush knows I can't learn on my own🙂 I have a hole in my head where languages are supposed to go.....
I don't believe anyone can learn a new language by this method. It's just too SciFi.

Yes, of course sometimes SciFi comes true eventually. But not everything, it's not a law. In this specific case, I would say, not 10, more like 100 or 1000 years from now. Let's meet then and discuss it again over a quark soup with carrots.

One of the comments in the article linked by sonhouse:

I have always had difficulties with integral calculus. But somewhere I have an old integral helmet from my biking days. Perhaps I should try that again...?
