A Multi-Person Brain-to-Brain Interface
BrainNet allows collaborative problem-solving using direct brain-to-brain communication. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. It allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Read more at MIT Technology Review Read the Arxiv Paper (Source: Neurobot)
