The purpose of this research is to develop tools to help people who are paralyzed. These tools are called brain computer interfaces (BCIs). BCIs would let a person use brain signals to operate technology. The investigators want to make a BCI that can be used to operate commercially available technologies for communication, environmental control or computer access. The BCI would replace a keyboard to let people operate these technologies without moving. However, the investigators need people to test the BCI so that the investigators can see how well it can replace a keyboard. The investigators want to understand how well it can work so that the investigators can make it useful for people who are paralyzed. The investigators will ask people to use the BCI to do things like make a communication system speak or type words on a computer.

Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) will use a P300 based brain computer interface (BCI) keyboard to type in assistive technology devices. The results of this study will be ...
In this study, we want to examine the effect of a new treatment approach for patients with severe upper limb paresis in the subacute phase after stroke. Brain Computer Interface (BCI) driv...
The investigators are developing a tool to help people who are severely paralyzed. This tool is called a brain-computer interface (BCI). BCIs can connect to computers or other electronic d...
The investigators want to develop a brain-computer interface (BCI) that will eventually allow people who are completely paralyzed to independently control the tilt feature on their power w...

Tactile brain-computer interface (BCI) systems can provide new communication and control options for patients with impairments of eye movements or vision. One of the most common modalities used in the...
Around 1741, composer Johann Sebastian Bach published a long and complicated keyboard piece, calling it Aria with diverse variations for a harpsichord with two manuals. It was the capstone of a public...
Instrumentation consisting of hardware and software that communicates with the BRAIN. The hardware component of the interface records brain signals, while the software component analyzes the signals and converts them into a command that controls a device or sends a feedback signal to the brain.
The portion of an interactive computer program that issues messages to and receives commands from a user.
Reducing the SURFACE TENSION at a liquid/solid interface by the application of an electric current across the interface thereby enhancing the WETTABILITY of the surface.
Computer systems utilized as adjuncts in the treatment of disease.
Computer-based representation of physical systems and phenomena such as chemical processes.
Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
