Neuroscientists at Duke University have proven that telepathic communication—between rats—is not only possible, but can be done across continents. Similar experiments are already being tested on monkeys.
The discovery, published Thursday in the journal Scientific Reports, is the first confirmed brain-to-brain communication between animals.
“We wanted to show that even when the line was noisy, we were able to get this to work,” he says. “We used to do this with wires but now we’re doing everything wirelessly and experimenting with swarms of rats.”
