A Direct Brain-to-Brain Interface in Humans

Figure 8

Response Vectors for the Sender and Receiver across Three Pairs

. Each vertical tick represents a trial; long lines represent behavioral responses. Experimental blocks are marked by a red background; control blocks by a grey background. The blue dashed line represents the block-specific value of the regression coefficient β (see text for details); the red line represents the block-specific value of the mutual information between the two vectors. Note that in all six experimental blocks, the value of β was significantly greater than zero while in all control blocks, the value was zero. Likewise, about 4 to 13 bits of information (see Table 3) were transferred from one brain to another during experimental blocks, compared to zero bits in the control blocks.
