Brain-computer interface (BCI) technologies, or technologies that use online brain signal processing, have a great promise to improve human interactions with computers, their environment, and even other humans. Despite this promise, there are no current serious BCI technologies in widespread use, due to the lack of robustness in BCI technologies. The key neural aspect of this lack of robustness is human variability, which has two main components: (1) individual differences in neural signals and…

Games, Gameplay, and BCI: The State of the Art

The appropriateness of game genres (a category of games characterized by a particular set of gameplay challenges) and the associated gameplay challenges for different BCI paradigms is evaluated and a number of recommendations for the field relating to genre-specific BCI-games development and assessing user performance are provided.

Towards passive brain–computer interfaces: applying brain–computer interface technology to human–machine systems in general

A unifying categorization of BCI-based applications, including the novel approach of passive BCI is proposed, which focuses on applications for healthy users, and the specific requirements and demands of this user group.

Brain–Computer Interface Technologies in the Coming Decades

A holistic approach to BCIs will enable a broad range of task-oriented and opportunistic applications by leveraging pervasive technologies and advanced analytical approaches to sense and merge critical brain, behavioral, task, and environmental information.

SSVEP-based BCI systems are deployable to users in treadmill walking that mimics natural walking rather than in highly-controlled laboratory settings and considerably promotes the use of a consumer-level EEG headset towards the real-life BCI applications.

Estimating endogenous changes in task performance from EEG

The potential for modeling time-on-task decrements in performance from concurrent measures of neural activity is illustrated by using EEG log power spectra and sequential forward floating selection to estimate endogenous changes in behavior in both a simulated driving task and a perceptual discrimination task.

Real-World Neuroimaging Technologies

The efforts of a joint government-academic-industry team to take an integrative, interdisciplinary, and multi-aspect approach to translate current technologies into devices that are truly fieldable across a range of environments are discussed.

Biosensor Technologies for Augmented Brain–Computer Interfaces in the Next Decades

It is shown that ABCI techniques continue to grow and evolve, incorporating new technologies and advances to address ever more complex and important neuroscience issues, with advancements that are envisioned to lead to a wide range of real-life applications.

Context-aware brain-computer interfaces: exploring the information space of user, technical system and environment.

A theoretical framework based on general human–machine system research for adding context awareness to a BCI system and results from a study on a passive BCI, which allows access to the covert aspect of user state related to the perceived loss of control are presented.

Games with a Purpose

"Games with a purpose" have a vast range of applications in areas as diverse as security, computer vision, Internet accessibility, adult content filtering, and Internet search, and any game designed to address these and other problems must ensure that game play results in a correct solution and, at the same time, is enjoyable.

Neuronal ensemble control of prosthetic devices by a human with tetraplegia

Initial results for a tetraplegic human using a pilot NMP suggest that NMPs based upon intracortical neuronal ensemble spiking activity could provide a valuable new neurotechnology to restore independence for humans with paralysis.
