Research Examines Customization of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Technology in Patients with ALS and Cognitive Decline

The novel technology of brain-computer interface (BCI) uses brain activity, as measured by electroencephalogram (EEG) to control external devices, facilitating paralyzed patients’ ability to communicate. This technology¹ can allow patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) to communicate even after they have lost the gaze control necessary for eye-tracking communication programs.¹ For maximum efficacy, BCI programs must account for aspects of disease heterogeneity, such as cognitive impairment, according to Andrew Geronimo, Ph.D., instructor, … 429 more words
