brain-computer interface

Brain-computer interfaces “read” the electrical brain activity of a patient, translate it into technical control signals for devices and machines and stimulate someone’s muscles. We cover the application of thought-controlled neuroprosthetics and various other innovations for patients with paraplegia, stroke or locked-in syndrome.
