Abstract:

This project was initiated to test the feasibility of designing a close-coupled, two-way communication link between man and computer using biological information. Specifically, experiments have been devised to determine whether biological information can be related to human thought, whether this information can be processed meaningfully by a computer, and whether similar biological processes representing the same or other thoughts can be induced in the same or another individual. Should such a close-coupling between man and machine prove to be feasible, possible applications would include extremely rapid interactive processing between a man and a computer, or communication between two or more persons with the computer acting as an interface.
