Guest Lecture: Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs): Past, Present, and Future Developments.

[Translate to Englisch:] WS

Assoc.Prof.Priv.-Doz. Selina Christin Wriessnegger from the Institute of Neural Engineering/BCI-Lab at Graz University of Technology will give a guest lecture on the following topic as part of Manuela Macedonia's course "Information Systems and Neuroscience" on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, 7:00 pm, in Lecture Hall 18:

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs): past, present, and future developments.

Historically, Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) is a system that measures central nervous system (CNS) activity and converts it into a control signal using computers. Such BCI applications have been developed primarily for patients to provide them with new communication channels or control functions. In recent years, BCI research has become increasingly interesting for a broader research community. In particular, so-called "passive BCIs", which are not consciously controlled by the user or respond to external stimuli, are attracting great interest in various research fields. A passive BCI system continuously interprets brain signals to provide insights into a person's cognitive state. This method allows applications in a variety of fields, such as the development of neuroadaptive systems to improve work and learning performance. In this talk, in addition to a general overview into BCI research, I will also discuss passive BCI systems and their potential applications.
