Direct brain to brain communication
There is a fascinating article in Scientific American today about a scientific study into the ability of human brains to communicate directly with each other without words. This has a lot of implications for topics we frequently discuss, so I thought I'd share the link here. It is well worth reading.
Scientists Demonstrate Direct Brain-to-Brain Communication in Humans
In a new study, technology replaces language as a means of communicating by directly linking the activity of human brains. Electrical activity from the brains of a pair of human subjects was transmitted to the brain of a third individual in the form of magnetic signals, which conveyed an instruction to perform a task in a particular manner. This study opens the door to extraordinary new means of human collaboration while, at the same time, blurring fundamental notions about individual identity and autonomy in disconcerting ways.
