Their research is published the journal "Science". The researchers wrote: "Visual imagery sleep has long been a topic persistent speculation, but its private nature has hampered objective analysis. Here, we present a neural decoding approach which machine learning models predict the contents visual imagery during sleep." They were able to predict what images their volunteers had seen a 60 per cent accuracy rate.
