Researchers Rajesh Rao and Andrea Stucco at the University of Washington, who in 2013 demonstrated a system that lets one brain remotely, send signals to another brain, moving the receiver's hand, have proved the efficacy of their human brain-to-brain communication system.

Now the experiment has been successfully replicated with three pairs of students, with each pair, signals were transmitted from the sender's brain to the receiver's via the Internet, moving the receiver's hand within a split second of the signal being sent.

Stucco said that the new study brings humans brain-to-brain interfacing paradigm from an initial demonstration to something that is closer to a deliverable technology and now they have replicated their methods and know that they can work reliably with walk-in participants.

With a 1 million dollars grant from the WM Keck Foundation, the team's next course of action is to widen the range of information that can be transmitted brain-to-brain, including thoughts, concepts and rules and they hope one day to explore the idea of brain-to-brain tutoring.

The study was published in the journal PLOS One.
