In a world first, a team of researchers has achieved brain-to-brain transmission of information between humans. The team managed to send messages from India to France - a distance of 5,000 miles - without performing invasive surgery on the test subjects. There were four participants in the study, aged between 28 and 50. One was assigned to a brain-computer interface to transmit the thought, while the three others were assigned to receive the thought. The first participant, located in India, was shown words translated into binary, and had to envision actions for each piece of information. For example, they could move their hands for a 1 or their legs for a 0. A technique known as electroencephalogry - which monitors brain signals from the outside - was used to record the thoughts as outgoing messages and send them via the internet. More via Yahoo
