First Human Brain-to-Brain Interface

Lead in text: 
While 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, researchers at the University of Washington believe this is the first demonstration of human-to-human brain interfacing.
University of Washington researchers have performed what they believe is the first noninvasive human-to-human brain interface, with one researcher able to send a brain signal via the Internet to control the hand motions of a fellow researcher.
