Brain Computer Interface (BCI)

Research seeks to develop an efficient and effective brain computer interface (BCI) system for persons with locked-in syndrome that serves as a communication system. We strive to improve the speed of the technology to increase communication rate, increase speed of message production, decrease error rate, and improve user satisfaction in a system that can be used for functional written and spoken expression.
