In addition, there has been growing interest in developing methods for predicting stimuli directly from functional data; thus allowing for the possibility to infer information from the scans about the subjects thought process and use brain activation patterns to characterize subjective human experience. This workshop brings together a number of leaders in the field on discuss their research on the area.
