Brain Computer Interfaces Workshop 2006

Challenging Brain Computer Interfaces: Neural Engineering Meets Clinical Needs in Neurorehabilitation
November, 9-10, 2006
IRCCS Fondazione Santa Lucia, Rome, Italy

Last years have witnessed advances in Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), but how far is this new field from clinical practice? The goal of the workshop is to draw the current and future scenarios involving the application of advanced neural engineering techniques to interpret brain signals for clinical use in the rehabilitation context.

The presentations will consist of a series of invited talks (see below) and poster presentations. Some of the major groups in BCI pursuing clinical applications of this technology will report their experience. The participation of the Associate Editors of relevant international journals in the field on neurotechnologies (IEEE TNSRE, Clinical Neurophysiology) will address how ultimate neural engineering techniques could meet the challenge. Also, the view of clinicians involved in neurorehabilitation programs will complete the picture. Finally, the European MAIA project will report their achievements in non-invasive brain-controlled robots.
