ok, no invasive manuevers, so EEG is option 1
, i studied present equipment a bit, the obtained signal levels
seem to be in the uV range, thus requiring sensitive/accurate
low noise amplifiers and the 3D position of activity seems
to be located quite accurate.

ok, tempting and sounds like it already has been achieved
, i'm more interested in 'understanding', decoding mind activity
When i think 'move' or 'red' or any concept, this should?
activate a specific area(s?) in brain that 'holds' this concept.

finally, if you tell me how, then i will and the result
