Actually, it's a bit weird - I think there must be some essential detail missing from the write-up, because it sounds like they:

Built and trained a system for correlating brain scan data to specific movie clips from a small library, allowing them to:
Determine which clip is being watched, and having done so:
Construct a shitty interpolated computer rendering of the known clip.

Unless I'm missing something, the visually striking output from step 3 is not actually a rendering of anything inside the head, just a re-rendering of a known piece of footage. It can't be that lame can it?
