[Science Daily] Brain-To-Brain Interface Allows Transmission of Tactile and Motor Information Between Rats  

post #1 of 8

Quote:
Researchers have electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart -- one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, Brazil.

I accidentally reposted, mods please remove.

I can see this being very powerful tech if it could be developed enough to work with humans. Group productivity would take on a whole new meaning.

Can anyone clarify when they say they "electronically" linked the rat brains?

They determined what neurons were activated while performing the activity and then stimulated the same areas in the second rat, which influenced the rat's decision.

Edit: Due to the inevitable lock, I'd continue posting in the first thread that I linked to above rather than this one.
