This is really freaky.

Just as the body has the miraculous power of being able to heal itself (doctors pretty much just "assist" the body to doing its job, the job that doctors cannot do), so does the brain have the uncanny ability to construct a neural network of visual information that allows us to instantly identify objects. Abilities that still mystify even the most brilliant of scientists.

So now let's just hook up two brains together and see what happens. Yikes!

Don't get me wrong--this is fascinating. But I have to wonder what would happen if they did this with humans and... the psychological repercussions.
