Controlling motion in the 1st human brain-to-brain interface

The Brain-Computer interfaces (BCI) with all its applications in learning, neurofeedback, decision making and rehabilitation are rolling out more and more. As researchers at Duke University have demonstrated brain-to-brain communication between two rats, and Harvard researchers have demonstrated it between a human and a rat, Rao and Stocco believe this is the first demonstration of human-to-human brain interfacing
