Scientists Studied How Our Brains Would React to Teleportation

Teleportation turns out to be an easy thing to simulate, neurologically speaking. The rhythmic brain patterns that appear in real-world spatial navigation reappear as subjects navigate virtualized environments on a screen, and, while real-world teleportation is not a thing that exists, in a virtual environment it’s just a matter of suddenly dropping a subject in new surroundings. Click. Thanks to neuroscientists at UC Davis, we now have some idea of what the neurological response is to such an abrupt change. In a study published Thursday in Neuron, the group describes virtualized navigation experiments involving three epilepsy patients who had been previously wired with electrodes inside of their brains for seizure-monitoring purposes. The Davis group was able to “borrow” these electrodes to observe deep-brain neurological activity relating to navigation and memory…
