Abstract

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) are systems that translate a measure of a user‘s brain activity into messages or commands for an interactive application. A typical example of a BCI is a system that enables a user to move a ball on a computer screen towards the left or towards the right, by imagining left or right hand movement respectively. The very term BCI was coined in the 70’s, and since then, interest and research efforts in BCIs grew tremendously, with possibly hundreds of laboratories around the world studying this topic. This has resulted in a very large number of paradigms, methods, concepts and applications of such technology. This handbook thus aims at providing an overview and tutorials of the multiple and rich facets of BCIs.
