Fully Implanted Brain-Computer Interface in a Locked-In Patient with ALS.
Options for people with severe paralysis who have lost the ability to communicate orally are limited. We describe a method for communication in a patient with late-stage amyotrophic lateral sclerosisExpand
Stability of a chronic implanted brain-computer interface in late-stage amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Highlights • Stability of recorded neural signals is crucial for the clinical viability of implantable brain-computer interfaces (BCIs).• A fully implantable BCI offers a long-term robust and durableExpand
Sensorimotor ECoG Signal Features for BCI Control: A Comparison Between People With Locked-In Syndrome and Able-Bodied Controls
The sensorimotor cortex is a frequently targeted brain area for the development of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) for communication in people with severe paralysis and communication problemsExpand
Using a One-dimensional control signal for two Different output Commands in an implanted BCI
We show that the user is able to produce sustained increases in activity for this purpose and that these signal changes can be clearly distinguished from the transient changes used as ‚brain-clicks. Expand
Sucrose preload reduces snacking after mild mental stress in healthy participants as a function of 5-hydroxytryptamine transporter gene promoter polymorphism
Abstract Brain serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) dysfunction is considered to promote food intake and eating-related disturbances, especially under stress or negative mood. Vulnerability for 5-HTExpand
Utrecht neuroprosthesis: from brain signal to Independent control
This paper describes the current architecture of the Utrecht NeuroProsthesis (UNP), a fully implantable electrocorticography (ECoG)-based BCI system. Expand
Dorsolateral prefrontal cortex-based control with an implanted brain–computer interface
The objective of this study was to test the feasibility of using the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex as a signal source for brain–computer interface control in people with severe motor impairment. WeExpand
Long-Term Home Use of a Fully implanted BCI for Communication: Visual and auditory Spelling
We report a case study where a user provided with a fully implantable Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) has been using the BCI at home for almost three years for communication. Expand
The spectral control Features of a bipolar ECoG BCI implant over Primary Hand motor cortex
We explore the spectral features that make up the LFB and HFB features of the bipolar ECoG signal used in the UNP. Expand
Mirror Neurons: Findings and Functions
Mirror neurons (MNs) are a set of premotor neurons that fire both during the performance of a motor action, and the observation of someone else performing the same action. Since their discovery, theyExpand
