UC Berkeley scientists are figuring out how to decode and reconstruct our dynamic visual experiences -- in one instance through subjects watching Hollywood movie trailers. We meet a lead scientist looking at how one day we may be able to go inside the mind of a coma patient, or even to watch a dream.

Host: Michael Krasny
