Now, mind you, this is way out of my league, but there are (or at least
as far as I understand these things) areas of activation that are far
from unique, and _patterns_ of activity which are predictable, for
examined facets of perception and stimuli. This is a fledgling
exploratory field (the equipment is horrendously expensive) and requires
(so far) a stationary cranium. But....

I think there is some light at the end of this tunnel.
