Here in his lab, I was carefully wired up, electrodesattached that can make sure the electrical activity inmy brain.

在他的实验室中,我周身上下被小心翼翼地用电线连接起来,而上面的电极可以确保我大脑中的脑电活动。

This is a first for me, looking at my own brain waves.

对我来说,这是第一次注视着自己的脑电波。

On the other side of campus, a good kilometeraway,Dr.Jessica Thomas was giving ready to.She would receive my thoughts, the quiz master in agame of 20 Questions.

而校园的另一边,一公里远处的杰西卡·托马斯博士已经准备就绪。她会接受我对于20个问题游戏中的想法。

This would be the first person from the public who's actually going to be sitting in this chair.So, you better do well.

这将是第一位公众人物坐在这把椅子上。所以,要更好的表现。

So, I'm going to have to concentrate really hard.

如果你想让别人弄清楚你脑子里在想什么的话,这样会有帮助的。

That would help, if you want to them to figure out what's on your mind.

接下来我会被给予一个物体进行思考,随后在屏幕上提出一个关于它的问题。

I was given an object to think about and ask a question about it on screen.I responded with just my eyes, focusing on a pair of oscillating lights under each answer, left foryes, right for no.This made the neurons in the visual cortex at the back of my brain fire in a certain way.And the information transmitted by the Internet to Dr.Thomas.

我只能用双眼来完成,在每组答案下的振荡光中以左对右错的方式集中精神。这样我大脑后部就会以某种方式射出视觉皮层的神经元。而信息会通过互联网传到托马斯博士那里。

Her helmet is equipped with a special device, transcranial magnetic stimulator, or TMS, which modifies her brain waves using magnetic fields.

托马斯博士的头盔是有一种名为TMS经颅磁刺激器的特殊装置,这种装置会通过磁场调整她的脑电波。

If the answer is yes, a pulse alters her vision ever so slightly.And after a few more questions, she consistently guessed what I was thinking.In the other words, in the rudimentary way, she was reading my thoughts.

如果是肯定的答案,一道脉冲会微微刺激她的双眼。而几道问题之后,她要一直猜我在想什么。换句话说,基本上,她需要读取我的想法。

Proving that brain to brain communication was feasible involved a meeting of three minds,Andrea Stocco and Chantel Prat are psychologists, married both to each other and to theexperiment.I'm the first person in the world to receive a tiny piece of information that comes straight from another person's brain.I'm only talking to the students who were there and I felt like, you know, we actually made the tiny bit of history today.We're dipping our toes in the water here, aren't we?That's a very good analogy.I think we are just beginning to scratch the surface of what does it mean for brains to be connected.

证明大脑间通过三方交流是参与此次试验安德里亚·斯特科及心理学家查特尔·帕拉特夫妇的主要目标。我是世界上直接从另一个人大脑中获得一小部分信息的第一人。我只跟那里的学生聊了聊,在那之后我感觉,你知道,我们今天实际上改变了一点点历史。我们已经跨进了那扇大门,不是吗?这是很好的比喻。我认为我们只是刚开始接触大脑连接问题的表面。

For example, from the medical side, you could imagine, you know, a paralyzed patients conveying to their loved ones, you know, their feelings and their intentions.

例如,从医学角度,你可以想象,一名瘫痪的病人希望对至亲之传达信息,你知道,他们的感情和意图等等。

There's a potential for brains to be connected in a way that it could be used for conveying, you know, abstract knowledge that might be hard to convey through language.

大脑通过某种特定方式进行连接可以用于传送,你懂的,抽象的知识可能很难通过语言传达。

So, this concept of brain tutoring or neural tutoring, just think brain to brain communication as a next potential stage for, you know, human evolution.

因此我们引入了大脑辅导或神经辅导的概念,想想大脑间沟通会成为未来潜在的阶段,你知道,人类终于进化。

Do we actually go beyond what biology can offer us in terms of communication to enhanceour creativity as humans?

我们是否真正超越生物学所提出作为人类的我们通过交流提高自身创造力吗?

And, you know, maybe we can literally put our heads together, you know, to solve the challenges facing humanity, you know, in science and in technology.

而且,你知道,也许我们可以集思广益,解决人类在科学技术领域面临的难题。
