Brain to Brain Interfacing


Recommended Posts

Researchers, Rajesh Rao and Andrea Stocco, from the University of Washington have performed the first noinvasive human-to-human brain interface.

University of Washington researchers have performed what they believe is the first noninvasive human-to-human brain interface, with one researcher able to send a brain signal via the Internet to control the hand motions of a fellow researcher.

Using electrical brain recordings and a form of magnetic stimulation, Rajesh Rao sent a brain signal to Andrea Stocco on the other side of the UW campus, causing Stocco's finger to move on a keyboard.

While researchers at Duke University have demonstrated brain-to-brain communication between two rats, and Harvard researchers have demonstrated it between a human and a rat, Rao and Stocco believe this is the first demonstration of human-to-human brain interfacing.


Here is the video they produced demonstrating their experiment. However, it's hard to tell what is actually going on. Nevertheless, it is still pretty cool!

I expect someday this will be something big. We have been looking for a way to have a mind computer interface. Maybe the first step might be mind to mind tranferral, then computer retreaval, visually put into mind A, then transferred to mind B.


Fun possibilities. Thanks Daedalus
