Researchers Rajesh Rao and Andrea Stocco from the University of Washington have connected two human brains together for the first time, allowing one subject to control the other's finger on a keyboard remotely, through the power of thought. The scientists had one subject wearing an electrode studded cap play a video game in one lab, whilst another, without a screen but with a keyboard, sat in the next room along. He was able to tap the keyboard and play the game without being able to see the screen, proving the theory.
This week on science in 90 seconds, we look at research from the University of Washington which managed to connect two human brains through the power of thought for the first time, a new, highly radioactive element discovered by scientists in Sweden, and life forms which have been discovered surviving over a mile beneath the floor of the ocean.
