THE world's first brain-to-brain link has given rats and monkeys the power to communicate by thought alone. "Many people thought it could never
happen," says Miguel Nicolelis at Duke University in Durham, North
Carolina. Although monkeys have used brain-to-machine interfaces to
control robots, Nicolelis's team has created the first direct connection
between two brains.
Researchers contacted by New Scientist
were cautiously impressed. Some suggested that the work could
eventually lead to insects being controlled by the brain signals of
humans, or the ability to transmit abstract thoughts between people.
What this means is that extra sensory perception and telepathic communication between human beings is not far off.
