According to the online publication C4ISRNET, the US Army has begun funding neuroscience research to create a system that will allow soldiers to communicate using telepathy.
Such a bold initiative is an attempt to create new medical technologies that can influence the nature of wars. The publication also reports that the US Army Research Organization (ARO) is going to spend $ 6, 25 million on the project over five years.
To date, ARO neuroscientists have already learned how to decode and analyze the signals of neurons that control behavior. This cannot be considered mind reading, it is only the first and very essential step towards understanding the essence of various brain signals.
As explained by the manager of the ARO program Hamid Krim, the next step will be to decode other categories of brain signals so that the computer can subsequently “vocalize” the thoughts of the military.
