Researchers Wire Monkey Brains Together to Make a Super-Brain

Brain-computer interfaces always sound incredibly futuristic. But this one is even wilder than most.

In a pair of studies published Thursday, researchers say they’ve linked up multiple brains, of both monkeys and rats, to form an “organic computer.” By literally putting their heads together, the networked animals performed simple tasks and computations better than an animal flying solo.

The experiment could point toward future brain interfaces between people, allowing learning or colla
