Yeah it's the same thing, they just go more in depth than I did. Note lines like:
"As yet, the technology can only reconstruct movie clips people have already viewed."

or

"Finally, the 100 clips that the computer program decided were most similar to the clip that the subject had probably seen were merged to produce a blurry yet continuous reconstruction of the original movie."

I remember House showing it much higher resolution but with reduced color variations.
