In a study that for the first time establishes the feasibility of direct brain-to-brain communication, an international group of researchers has successfully shown it is possible to non-invasively transmit a thought from one person to another 5,000 miles away, without either of them having to speak or write.
Indeed, in a paper on the work published in PLOS ONE, the authors argue that what the study shows should probably be termed “mind-to-mind” transmission as opposed to “brain-to-brain,” because “both the origin and the destination of the communication involved the conscious activity of the subjects.”
In the brain-to-brain equivalent of “instant messaging,” the study shows how the international team of neuroscientists and robotics engineers used various “neurotechnologies” to send messages via the Internet between the intact scalps of two human subjects over 5,000 miles apart – one in India and the other in France.
The team included members from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School (HMC) in Boston, MA, Starlab Barcelona in Spain, and Axilum Robotics in Strasbourg, France……Read More
