Building brain-computer interfaces with BrainGain
BrainGain is a Dutch research consortium consisting of researchers, industry and potential users of Brain-Computer and Computer-Brain interfaces. The program started in September 2007 and is funded by SmartMix, a Dutch initiative to support applied research.
BrainGain is researching possibilities of applications for both ill and healthy users, and aims to eventually manufacture off-the-shelf products making use of their research results.
Detecting and modifying brain activity is currently one of the fastest developing areas of research. It promises to bring applications that have long been thought to be only science fiction, ranging from mind-controlled computer games to so-called mental prostheses and treatment for conditions previously thought untreatable.
