According to James Gorman, Duke University neuroscientist, Miguel Nicolelis, connected the brains of two rats "in such a way that when one moves to press a lever, the other one does, too most of the time."
Much of Dr. Nicoleliss work is directed toward creating a full exoskeleton that a paralyzed person could operate with brain signals. Although this experiment is not directly related, he said, it helps refine the ability to read and translate brain signals, an important part of all prosthetic devices connected to the brain, and an area in which brain science is making great advances.
He also speculated about the future possibility of a biological computer, in which numerous brains are connected, and views this as a small step in that direction.
