Hive Mind & The Encounter R&D Resources

The Hive Mind Project studies communal consciousness - collective experiences and the emergence of crowd behaviour.

They use EEG data from groups of volunteers while they experience something together as well as individually and compare these datasets to study the neural effects of togetherness in a performance context.

The project started their experiments at a production of The Encounter in the spring of 2017.

More information on their work can be found at: Hive Mind.
