Conscious Brain-to-Brain Communication in Humans Using Non-Invasive Technologies – C. Grau, R. Ginhoux, A. Riera, T. Lam Nguyen, H. Chauvat, M. Berg, JL. Amengual, A. Pascual-Leone, G. Ruffini, PLoS ONE 9(8): e105225.

Human sensory and motor systems provide the natural means for the exchange of information between individuals, and, hence, the basis for human civilization. The recent development of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) has provided an important element for the creation of brain-to-brain communication systems, and precise brain stimulation techniques are now available for the realization of non-invasive computer-brain interfaces (CBI). These technologies, BCI and CBI, can be combined to realize the vision of non-invasive, computer-mediated brain-to-brain (B2B) communication between subjects (hyperinteraction). This article provide a critical proof-of-principle demonstration for the development of conscious B2B communication technologies. More fully developed, related implementations will open new research venues in cognitive, social and clinical neuroscience and the scientific study of consciousness.
