Brain-Computer Interfaces


Brain–computer Interfaces emerged a few decades ago as a new communication technology to permit subjects with severe neuromuscular disorders to communicate and interact with the outer world. Recently, the rapid development of wireless technology opened the door for out-of-the-lab applications, such as in the field of entertainment, industry, marketing, and education. In the future, we foresee a new generation of smart neuro-devices for the cloud-computing of cerebral activity. This includes the deployment of large ensembles of fully-wireless-neural prostheses capable of performing complex tasks and bidirectional sensing. This ecosystem of implantable neuro-sensors constitutes a new framework of the IoT arena. This is a challenging and multidisciplinary paradigm that encompasses communication protocols, efficient wireless energy harvesting, large-scale neuro-signal acquisition and closed-loop systems.

We focus on both invasive and non-invasive brain–computer interfaces, services and applications such as entertainment, stress assessment, support for clinical evaluation, cognitive impairment, education performance analysis and high performance BCIs at large.
