Abstract

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) are devices that translate a user’s brain activity into messages or commands (Wolpaw et al., 2002; Pfurtscheller et al., 2010; Wolpaw and Wolpaw, 2012). BCIs have four components: a signal acquisition system that records the user’s brain activity; a signal processing module that finds meaningful patterns within this brain activity that reflect a user’s intent; an output device such as a monitor, wheelchair or robotic arm; and an operating protocol that controls the interaction among these different modules and people such as the user or an operator. Signal acquisition may involve sensors placed on or in the brain (through neurosurgery), or noninvasive methods such as scalp-mounted electrode caps or functional MRI.
