New BCI might give back the world to locked-in syndrome patients

Researchers have been using brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) to interact with patients suffering from locked-in syndrome for the last decade. What is brand-new is a system created by the Wyss Center for Bio and Neuroengineering in Switzerland that may finally allow even … Continue reading New BCI might give back the world to locked-in syndrome patients

Left-hand vs. Right-hand finger tapping experiment

The aim of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is to improve the autonomy of people with severe motor disabilities by new communication and control options. It is commonly known that either if you perform a movement, or you think about actually doing … Continue reading Left-hand vs. Right-hand finger tapping experiment

MI and ME-BCI Training with OpenBCI

MI-BCI training is based on visuo-motor imagination and together with other mental task imagination (e.g. mental subtraction, word association) is the only paradigm of endogenous nature that does not require external stimulation but only the user’s imaginative action. In addition, … Continue reading MI and ME-BCI Training with OpenBCI

Two External Buttons on OpenBCI 32bit Board

Sometimes, when studying EEG or other biopotential signals, you will want to have precise timing between external events or stimulus and the data stream. For example, motor imagery based brain-computer interface (BCI) translates the subject’s motor intention into a control … Continue reading Two External Buttons on OpenBCI 32bit Board
