Scientists connect 3 people’s brains so that they can share thoughts!

A team of scientists have unlocked the potential of mental telepathy through a series of experiments conducted on test subjects. The study spearheaded by the team at the University of Washington focused on connecting three brains by developing an interface called the ‘BrainNet Network’. This interface accomplished the purpose of sending messages to each other and also catalogued brain activity utilising an EEG or electrocardiogram, which in turn uses transcranial magnetic stimulations to send thoughts to the people who are under the ambit of the network.
The three subjects who were involved in the study played a simplified version of the game Tetris wherein a block can be rotated in a specific manner so as to fit it into a designated gap. Two of the subjects were assigned the task of transmitting signals to the third person and communicate their intention by focusing on one of the two flashing lights. The flashing lights essentially indicated the options ‘rotate’ and ‘don’t rotate’.
The study used five groups that comprised three people each and achieved a success rate of 81 per cent. Although this type of communication is the most basic and understated, it could signify a potential future where people can communicate with each other by not uttering a single word.
