Human Non-Invasive Direct Brain-to-Brain Communication for Group Problem-Solving

BrainNet is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem-solving. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. The interface allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Two of the three subjects are …
