See a description of recent work on imagined speech on Through the Wormhole, hosted by Morgan Freeman, on the Science Channel. The work is described in the fourth season episode titled, "How Do Aliens Think?" An online video excerpt is also available.

Some work on intended direction is described on Futurescape, hosted by James Woods, on the Science Channel. The work is described in the episode titled "I know what you're thinking".
