Concept Behind 'Gut Feelings': Brains Use 'Wi-Fi Connection', According To Scientist

Humans brains are interconnected through a type of 'wi-fi' which allows us to pick up far more information about other people than we are aware of, a leading professor claims.


The brains are wired or interconnected.

Scientists believe they have uncovered the secret behind 'gut feeling' claiming the human brain has a form of wi-fi which is constantly gathering information on other people by simply looking at them.


Digby Tantam thinks he has the answer and explains all in his new book 'The Interbrain'.

Professor Digby Tatum writes in his that language only plays a very small part in understanding what other human beings are actually saying.


He argues the brain is working hard to pick up small micro-signals that communicate what a person is thinking.

It explains how people often have 'gut feelings' about people or situations despite not being able to logically pinpoint why according to Mr. Tantum.

He claimed humans are drawn together at football matches, concerts and religious ceremonies because of the concept of the interbrain.

Professor Tatum says that it is particularly important for people to get to grips with the importance of these subliminal clues now as they are in danger of being undermined by the increasing rise of video calls and similar technological developments in recent years.


Although he warned that communicating through video calls can interrupt this process and could cause harm.

“People with autism have little or no interbrain connection. They are often able to pick up or learn what expressions mean and yet that doesn’t seem to solve the problem of that lack of human connection.
