  • Virtual BCI - Play games using thought: Join us for the Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) Pilot Program from home: Brain computer interfaces (BCIs) are computer systems that take brain signals and translate them into commands. Through practice, the BCI learns the specific patterns of your brain to perform a task, such as controlling music or playing a game.
    • This program is for individuals: with a physical disability that have restricted control of hand and arm movements; with any range of communication - must be able to respond to yes/no questions (e.g. verbally, with a physical signal or with yes/no cards); who can understand cause and effect; with an estimated developmental age of minimum 5 years.
