what is a bci
What is a BCI?
  • BCIs read electrical signals or other manifestations of brain activity and translate them into a digital form that computers can understand, process, and convert into actions of some kind, such as moving a cursor or turning on a TV.
  • BCI can help people with inabilities to control computers, wheelchairs, televisions, or other

devices with brain activity.

the 3 major components of bcis 4
The 3 major components of BCIs[4]
  • Ways of measuring neural signals from the human brain
  • Methods and algorithms for decoding brain states/intentions from these signals and
  • Methodology and algorithms for mapping the decoded brain activity to intended behavior or action.
invasive versus non invasive bci
Invasive versus Non-invasive BCI
  • Invasive techniques, which implant electrodes directly onto a patient’s brain;
  • Noninvasive techniques, in which medical

scanning devices or sensors mounted on caps or headbands read brain signals.

why bci 2
Why BCI? [2]
  • BCI is a new neuroscience paradigm that might help us better understand how the human brain works in terms of reorganization, learning, memory, attention, thinking, social interaction, motivation, interconnectivity, and much more.
  • BCI research allows us to develop a new class of bioengineering control devices and robots to provide daily life assistance to handicapped and elderly people.
  • Several potential applications of BCI hold promise for rehabilitation and improving performance, such as treating emotional disorders (for example, depression or anxiety), easing chronic pain, and overcoming movement disabilities due to stroke.
  • BCI can expand possibilities for advanced human computer interfaces (HCIs), making them more natural, flexible, efficient, secure, and user-friendly by enhancing the interaction between the brain, the eyes, the body, and a robot or a computer.
bci paradigms 2
BCI Paradigms [2]
  • Passive endogenous: specific mental imagination activity— for example, motor imagery or mental arithmetic;
  • active endogenous: active neurofeedback and unrestricted

mental imagination using the operant-conditioning

principle—a “no specifics” cognitive, “just do it” principle;

  • passive exogenous: responses to externally driven stimuli to evoke specific brain responses called event-related potentials (ERPs); and
  • active exogenous: consciously modified responses to external stimuli, often combined with neurofeedback.

Carleton University’s proposed BCI-based biometric system [1]

Subjects use specific thoughts as passwords (called pass-thoughts).When someone

tries to access a protected computer system or building, they think of their pass-

thought.A headpiece with electrodes records the brain signals.The system

extracts the signal’s features for computer processing,which includes

identification of the feature subset that best and most consistently represents the

pass-thought.The biometric system then compares the subset to those recorded

for authorized users.

current and future trends in noninvasive bci 2
Current and future trends in noninvasive BCI [2]
  • Unimodal to multimodal - that is, simultaneous monitoring of brain activity using several devices and combining BCI with multimodal HCIs;
  • Simple signal-processing tools to more advanced machine learning and multidimensional data mining;
  • Synchronous binary decision to multidegree control and asynchronous self-paced control;
  • Open-loop to closed-loop control - neurofeedback combined with multimodal HCI; and
  • Laboratory tests to practical trials in the noisy real world environment.
