Brain-computer interface (BCI) research at the Wadsworth Center focuses on noninvasive, electroencephalography (EEG)-based BCI methods for helping severely disabled individuals communicate and interact with their environment. We have demonstrated that these individuals, as well as able-bodied individuals, can learn to use sensorimotor rhythms (SMRs) to move a cursor rapidly and accurately in one and two dimensions. We have also developed a practical P300-based BCI that enables users to access and control the full functionality of their personal computer. We are currently translating this laboratory-proved BCI technology into a system that can be used by severely disabled individuals in their homes with minimal ongoing technical oversight. Our comprehensive approach to BCI design has led to several innovations that are applicable in other BCI contexts, such as space missions.
