How human brains have been connected through a Sort of 'Wi Fi' which explains why individuals have 'gut feelings'
Prof Digby Tatum has been studying how the human brain can 'communicate'
Scientists believe they've found the secret behind 'gut feeling' claiming the mind has a kind of wifi which is constantly gathering information on other people by simply taking a look at them.
Professor Digby Tatum of the University of Sheffield has been researching the human brain and how people communicate.
He believes his work demonstrates that language just plays a minimal role when it comes to communication.
Qualified poker players believe they can pick up 'informs' from their competitors by picking upon visual cues, or slight movements.
He's written about his findings in a new book, The Interbrain, released by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
As stated by the Sunday Telegraph, Prof Tatum said: 'We can know about other people's emotions and what they have been paying attention to. It's based upon the direct connection between our minds and other individuals and between their brain and also ours. I predict this interbrain.'
He claimed humans are drawn together at football games, concerts and religious ceremonies because of the concept of the interbrain.
He said: 'Being in audience mode might make us experience what it would be like to transcend out perspective, our own time, our place and our capacity, to feel for a moment, just like a driving.'
Even though he warned that communicating through video calls can interrupt this method and could lead to harm.
He added: 'Emotional contagion occurs at the rate of light, perhaps not the rate of electronic transmission. The facetoface visual input signal is combined with sound by default, with the smell of sweat, by the possibility of touch, and also with a connect.'
