research even further, and thanks to the $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation, UW researchers can see just how much can be digitally transmitted from, and between, our brains.
“With the new funding, the research team will expand the types of information that can be transferred from brain to brain, including more complex visual and psychological phenomena such as concepts, thoughts and rules.
They’re also exploring how to influence brain waves that correspond with alertness or sleepiness. Eventually, for example, the brain of a sleepy airplane pilot dozing off at the controls could stimulate the copilot’s brain to become more alert.
