  • They can at the moment......

  • I think this guy has never heard of Neurology or Psychology . . .

  • They can study our minds right now but ofcourse in the future as technology and studies progress scientist will better understand just how mind works. In saying this, I think that their is limit to the amount that we can trully understand about our minds with somethings forever remaining a mystery. Growth ,experiences, environment and genetics all contribute to building our brain leading to huge differences among individuals and over complicates things. I guess that is what differentiates us from robots.

  • Can: probably. Should: I think not.

No, what they study is the brain, not the mind. Don't be confused!:)

I'm sorry, that sounds exactly the same to me. They're studying the brain, which is the same thing as studying the mind, at least so far as I'm concerned. The only way I can interpret them as different things would be having the mind as sort of what in CPU terms is software. And even then, brain scans exist, which can tell what's going on in there.

No fucking clue. The mind is a big deal.
