We investigated neural communication mechanisms subserving human prospective memory that enables us to formulate, encode, maintain, remember and realize intentions of future action plans. We identified patterns of inter-temporal and inter-areal correlations of functional magnetic resonance imaging data and phase synchronization networks of electroencephalography data when human subjects remember one's own or other's past behavior to construct ideas about future plans. We further extended such neural mechanisms of individual person to analyses of person-to-person interactions for development of a new communication system that enabled transmission of intentions and sharing of behavioral meanings by using memories of past behaviors of self and others.
