DMET 1058 Brain Computer Interfaces

Course Information


  • Brain-Computer Interface or BCI is a rapidly evolving technology that builds a direct communication channel between the human brain and the computer. The current goal of BCI is to use signals from the brain to direct some external activity, for example, controlling a cursor or a prosthetic limb. This introductory course will begin discussions on definitions, and benefits of BCI. Next, BCI components, types, BCI in animals and humans, medical and non-medical BCI applications, BCI technologies, and the current and future status of BCI will be covered.
