IT MIGHT seem like a far-fetched science fiction concept more than reality, but scientists have made a breakthrough in brain-networking.
As the name suggests, the method involves linking brains together to create a collective network of thought.
Director of the Centre for Neuroengineering at Duke University Miguel A. Nicolelis has spent over two decades attempting to make this dream a reality.
For the past 25 years, Nicolelis and his colleagues have been deciphering signals recorded by electrodes implanted in brains by using devices of their own design.
And now they have had a breakthrough by wiring animals’ brains so they can collaborate on simple tasks.
