Duke University neuro-biologist Miguel Nicoleilis says it might one day be possible for animals to communicate and collaborate with each other, using only their thoughts. Dr Nicoleilis has already developed interface technology connecting animal brains with machines, but is now publishing the results of experiments with rats demonstrating the possibilities of so-called brain-to-brain interface technology.
