We present a smartphone application for at-home participation in large-scale neuroscientific studies. Our goal is to establish user-experience design as a paradigm in basic neuroscientific research to overcome the limits of current studies, especially in rare neurological disorders.The presented application guides users through the fitting procedure of the EEG headset and automatically encrypts and uploads recorded data to a remote server. User-feedback and neurophysiological data from a pilot… Expand

MYND: Unsupervised Evaluation of Novel BCI Control Strategies on Consumer Hardware
This work introduces MYND: An open-source framework that couples consumer-grade recording hardware with an easy-to-use application for the unsupervised evaluation of BCI control strategies and uses a four-channel electroencephalogram (EEG) with MYND as a use case. Expand
Workshops of the Seventh International Brain-Computer Interface Meeting: Not Getting Lost in Translation.
This paper summarizes each workshop at the BCI Meeting, providing an overview of the topic of discussion, references for additional information, and identifying future issues for research and development that resulted from the interactions and discussion at the workshop. Expand


Choosing MUSE: Validation of a Low-Cost, Portable EEG System for ERP Research
It is demonstrated that with a single computer and a portable EEG system such as the MUSE one can conduct ERP research with ease thus greatly extending the possible use of the ERP methodology to a variety of novel contexts. Expand
A Cognitive Brain-Computer Interface for Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
A new paradigm that targets higher level cognitive processes to transmit information from the user to the BCI is devised that could serve as a basis for a novel tool which allows for simple, reliable communication with patients in late stages of ALS. Expand
Brain–computer interfaces in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: A metanalysis
The present metanalysis was performed to test the evidence of BCI effectiveness in ALS, and to investigate whether the promising aims emerged from the first studies have been reached, and whether new well-powered studies should be conducted to confirmBCI effectiveness for ALS patients. Expand
The User-Centered Design as Novel Perspective for Evaluating the Usability of BCI-Controlled Applications
The here suggested evaluation metrics within the framework of the UCD proved to be an applicable and informative approach to evaluate BCI controlled applications, and end-users with severe impairment and in the locked-in state were able to participate in this process. Expand
Power failure: why small sample size undermines the reliability of neuroscience
It is shown that the average statistical power of studies in the neurosciences is very low, and the consequences include overestimates of effect size and low reproducibility of results. Expand
State of play in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis genetics
Current literature of the major genes underlying ALS, SOD1, TARDBP, FUS, OPTN, VCP, UBQLN2, C9ORF72 and PFN1 are summarized and how each new genetic discovery is broadening the phenotype associated with the clinical entity the authors know as ALS is outlined. Expand
Development of NASA-TLX (Task Load Index): Results of Empirical and Theoretical Research
Abstract The results of a multi-year research program to identify the factors associated with variations in subjective workload within and between different types of tasks are reviewed. SubjectiveExpand
The Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with Assistive Technology (QUEST 2.0): An overview and recent progress
The Quebec User Evaluation of Satisfaction with Assistive Technology (QUEST 2.0) is a 12-item outcome measure that assesses user satisfaction with two components, Device and Services. PsychometricExpand
Determinants of Perceived Ease of Use: Integrating Control, Intrinsic Motivation, and Emotion into the Technology Acceptance Model
This work presents and tests an anchoring and adjustment-based theoretical model of the determinants of system-specific perceived ease of use, and proposes control, intrinsic motivation, and emotion as anchors that determine early perceptions about the ease ofuse of a new system. Expand
