About

Research groups all over the world have been working enthusiastically on Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), which provide a direct connection from the human brain to a computer. BCIs translate brain activity into control signals for numerous applications, including tools to help severely disabled users communicate and improve their quality of life. BCIs have been used to restore movement, assess cognitive functioning, and provide communication and environmental control. One of the most exciting applications of biosignal processing are BCIs, in which users can spell or perform other tasks via thought alone. Very recent work has extended BCI Technology to help persons with coma, stroke and SCI diseases. We will provide interactive, hands-on demonstrations of new BCI technologies. Attendees will learn about signal processing methods used in BCIs and how they can be extended to provide real-world help for patients.
