#WhutItDo: JK. No bananas. But the over at in St. Louis, MO, did find
something super unexpected
while recording the neural activity of a pair of monkeys during some wacky
experiment. Apparently they could see what the little buddies were planning to do before they even did it!

#FutureOfStuff: Now, I’m no Brain Wizard, but if you can see something coming, chances are you can
catch it. By reproducing the neural ‘planning’ stage for an action, could you make a subject think it meant to
do something? Whoa.
