Evaluating If Children Can Use Simple Brain Computer Interfaces

Background: The options for severely disabled children with intact cognition to interact with their environment are extremely limited. A brain computer interface (BCI) has the potential to allow such persons to gain meaningful function, communication, and independence. While the pediatric population might benefit most from BCI technology, research to date has been predominantly in adults. […]

Utilization of Psychophysiological Measurement for Determination of Human State of Mind during Brake Performance Test

woman driving car emotiv EPOC plus headset brain controlled technology

This paper reviews psychophysiological measurement applied on humans, by mainly focusing on brain waves observed by EEG sensor placed on scalp during brake performance testing. During braking high physiological stress, response and fear are observed, hence brain waves are monitored during brake test.
