Neuroscientist Builds Device That Allows Brain-To-Brain Communication

This 18-minute Ted Talk by neuroscientist Miguel Nicolelis explains his research that led to a brain-controlled exoskeleton used by a paralyzed man to kick the first ball of the 2014 World Cup. Now Nicolelis is testing the limits of how consciousness can be transmitted between brains of monkeys. In amazing ways, this broadens the horizons of what we think is possible in human communication.
