Researchers connected the brains of rats thousands of miles apart through the Internet, allowing them to share information and collaborate on simple tasks. The Internet was used to interface the brains of rats in North Carolina and Brazil in one experiment. "These experiments showed that we have established a sophisticated, direct communication linkage between brains. Basically, we are creating what I call an organic computer," said lead scientist Miguel Nicolelis.
