A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a system that conveys messages and commands directly from the human brain to a computer. The BCI system described in this work is based on P300 wave. The P300 is a positive peak of an event-related potential (ERP) that happens 300 ms after a stimulus. One of the most well-known and widely-used P300 applications is P300(More)
The development of noninvasive neuroimaging techniques, such as fMRI, has rapidly advanced our understanding of the neural systems underlying the integration of visual and motor information. However, the fMRI experimental design is restricted by several environmental elements, such as the presence of the magnetic field and the restricted view of the(More)
We present a unique simulator-based methodology for assessing both technical and nontechnical (cognitive) skills for surgical trainees while immersed in a complete medical simulation environment. Further, we have included two crisis scenarios which allow for the evaluation of the effect of cognitive strategy selection on the low-level surgical skills.(More)
Planning surgical interventions is a complex task, demanding a high degree of perceptual, cognitive, and sensorimotor skills to reduce intra- and post-operative complications. This process requires spatial reasoning to coordinate between the preoperatively acquired medical images and patient reference frames. In the case of neurosurgical interventions,(More)
The primary purpose of medical image visualization is to improve patient outcomes by facilitating the inspection, analysis, and interpretation of patient data. This is only possible if the users’ perceptual and cognitive limitations are taken into account during every step of design, implementation, and evaluation of interactive displays.(More)
Endoscopic third ventriculostomy is a minimally invasive technique to treat hydrocephalus, which is a condition in which the patient is retaining excessive amount of cerebrospinal fluid in the head. While this surgical procedure is fairly routine, it carries some risks, mainly associated with the lack of depth perception, since monocular endoscopes provide(More)
