Brain To Brain Communication

Brain to brain communication uses brain-computer interfacing and the Internet to transmit and receive peoples thoughts…

British scientists have developed a system that allows people to send thoughts, words and images to the minds of others, in a form of brain-to-brain communication.

The system, developed by a team the the University of Southampton, has been hailed as the future of the internet, providing a new way to communicate without the need for keyboards and telephones.

The system could also offer a form of communication for the severely disabled. Dr. Christopher James, lead scientist of the project, said:

This could be useful for those people who are locked into their bodies, who cant speak, cant even blink,

The team claim the research proves that thought-controlled communication is more than possible, even though a fully working system was many years away from being perfected.

To enable the brain-to-brain communication, scientists used a technique called brain-computer interfacing. This allows computers to analyze brain signals, then send these messages through the Internet to another persons brain.

According to Dr James, during transmission two people were connected to electrodes that measure activity in specific parts of the brain.

The first person generated a series of zeros and ones, by imaging moving their left arm for zero, and their right arm for one. Brain-computer interfacing then translates these binary thoughts, and sends them to the recipient via the Internet.

A lamp is then flashed at two different frequencies, for one and zero.

The second persons brain signals are then analyzed and the number sequence picked up by a computer.
While the technology may appear to be supernatural, Dr James, explained that there is no psychic phenomenon at work:

Its not telepathy

Theres no conscious thought forming in one persons head and another conscious thought appearing in another persons mind

The next experiments are to get that second person to be aware of the information that is being sent to them. For that, I need to get my thinking cap on, so to speak.
