Researchers link two human brains together for question-and-answer experiment

Called PLOS ONE, the experiment is thought to be the first to show that two brains can be directly linked to allow one person to correctly guess what’s on the other’s mind. According to assistant professor of psychology and researcher at UW’s Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, Andrea Stocco, it’s the most complex brain-to-brain experiment that’s been done to date in humans. So how exactly does this work? The first participant, or respondent, wears a cap connected to an electroencephalography (EEG) machine that records electrical brain activity. The respondent is then shown an object, such as a dog, on a computer screen, and the second participant, known as the inquirer, sees a list of possible objects and associated questions. By clicking the mouse, the inquirer sends a question and the respondent answers “yes” or “no” by focusing on one of two flashing LED lights attached to the monitor, which flash at different frequencies.
