Recently a locked-in ALS patient was equipped with the Utrecht NeuroProsthesis (UNP), a fully implantable electrocorticography (ECoG)-based BCI system. The UNP system translates the neuronal activity from this patient to a control signal that is used to make selections within a graphical user interface (GUI) and speller application. This paper describes the current architecture of the UNP system from brain signal to GUI and speller control.
