Caption: These are frequency spectrograms of the actual spoken words (top) and the sounds as reconstructed by two separate models based solely on recorded temporal lobe activity in a volunteer subject. The words -- Waldo, structure, doubt and property -- are more or less recognizable, even though the model had never encountered these specific words before.
