Help in the identification process of neural impulses and chemical secretions in the brain
Instead of injecting or exposing humans to chemicals that the brain produces, or covering your mental engine in motor oil as David puts it, could thermal imagery(or any other form of imagery that could detect electrical impulses) be used to show electrical impulses in the brain as it reacts to certain pictures that influence emotion? I am sure to have an unbiased approach- you would first have to determine what images would be appealing or unappealing to each person. For instance(sorry to be coarse), if you were to show Jeffrey Dahmer an image involving the act of necrophilia, it could possibly cause different neural impulses than in a normal person. Would it be possible to survey a group of people regarding questions about how certain objects or actions would affect there emotion; using the answers to theses surveys to generate pictures and exposing them to each person while their brain is under a device that monitors and depicts chemical secretion and neural impulses? I could be asking the wrong questions. I could be presenting entirely absurd ideas. I am just a blue collar mechanic from Alabama with no college degree(I thought I would add this statement- in case I am ridiculed, you can easily say, "another dumb redneck from Alabama.")
