Welcome to the Brain-Machine Interfaces group!
This group is dedicated to a rapidly developing set of technologies - commonly known as brain-machine interfaces (BMI) - with a broad span of nearly-futuristic applications. Currently it allows for:
Future applications include:
How do Brain-Machine Interfaces work?
If you're interested in how current BMIs work, visit this page How Brain-computer Interfaces Work. And of course, there are lots of information on history and recent developments in BMI on Wikipedia page.
For more in-depth information, see the following list of scientific papers. I've separated them into categories. "Review papers" are general articles that describe various BMI developed by the time the article was written. Other papers describe specific approaches to BMI.
