neural decoding

Neural decoding is a way to make computers understand how our brains are thinking. It works like this: brain signals (like electrical activity) come from sensors on your head. Computers analyze these signals to figure out what your brain is thinking. This way, computers can learn to understand how people are thinking and feeling. For example, scientists can use neural decoding to tell when a person has made a decision in their brain.
