520    "The ability to read minds has long been a fascination of 
       science fiction, but revolutionary new brain-imaging 
       methods are bringing it closer to scientific reality. The 
       New Mind Readers provides a compelling look at the origins,
       development, and future of these extraordinary tools, 
       revealing how they are increasingly being used to decode 
       our thoughts and experiences--and how this raises 
       sometimes troubling questions about their application in 
       domains such as marketing, politics, and the law. Russell 
       Poldrack takes readers on a journey of scientific 
       discovery, telling the stories of the visionaries behind 
       these breakthroughs. Along the way, he gives an insider's 
       perspective on what is perhaps the single most important 
       technology in cognitive neuroscience today--functional 
       magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, which is providing 
       astonishing new insights into the contents and workings of
       the mind. He highlights both the amazing power and major 
       limitations of these techniques and describes how 
       applications outside the lab often exceed the bounds of 
       responsible science. Poldrack also details the unique and 
       sometimes disorienting experience of having his own brain 
       scanned more than a hundred times as part of a landmark 
       study of how human brain function changes over time. 
       Written by one of the world's leading pioneers in the 
       field, The New Mind Readers cuts through the hype and 
       misperceptions surrounding these emerging new methods, 
       offering needed perspective on what they can and cannot do
       --and demonstrating how they can provide new answers to 
       age-old questions about the nature of consciousness and 
       what it means to be human"--|cInside jacket flap
