Research Brain computer interfaces

A Brain Computer Interface (BCI) is a system that provides direct communication pathways between the brain and an external device. These interfaces are a communication alternative, particularly interesting for people with severe motor disabilities. A BCI can be based on different physiological phenomena and it is highly dependent on brain activity signals, classification and feature extraction methods used to predict the user’s intention. The use of this technology in concrete real-world applications still presents several challenges that have hindered its effective implementation. In this line of research, the most recent paradigms are explored and new algorithms are developed to improve the performance and usability of BCIs.
