The United States Army hopes to read the minds of its soldiers by monitoring brain activity and body responses

A new system designed to aid soldiers will use neuro-physiological sensors to help monitor the brain activity of U.S. Army personnel out in the field.  Some of the things measured and recorded include the heart rate and brain activity of the soldiers.  Once the data has been processed, the system will hopefully influence what a soldier does in certain situations.

The U.S. Army, Honeywell and the Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are working on the new wireless technology that will be integrated into the Army's Future Force Warrior program.

Misleading

This article is misleading in its statements. When the public thinks of mind-reading we think of the ability to get processed information or memories. What DARPA is simply doing is using ERP electrodes to monitor stress and alertness. While it is true this is interesting technology we have had ERP since the 1920s. And while we have learned a lot more through its use since then its use can hardly be called mind reading.
