The Center for Adaptive Neurotechologies has pioneered technical advances in available hardware and software that can support complex interactions with the nervous system. It is through these tools that we are coming to better understand brain and CNS function. Building upon these advances, NCAN has developed a core of physiological, behavioral, anatomical, and clinical methods for interacting with the CNS and applied those methods in patient-based studies and clinical trials.
The Center actively maintains a mature software platform for real-time biosignal acquisition, analysis, and feedback. This platform originated at Wadsworth and has become standard technology for brain-computer interfacing and related neurotechnological research and development worldwide. The Center provides the BCI2000 platform at no cost to research and clinical groups throughout the world.
