The BCI workshop was held in Kiel on June 6th, 2014, for researchers interested in brain computer interfaces. A BCI translates biosignals from the brain into a signal readable by a computer, enabling the user to control devices by thoughts. For participants it was possible to test a BCI by spelling words or phrases by thoughts, which thereafter were displayed on the screen.
Speakers of the workshop:
Prof. Dr. med. U. Stephani (professor for neuropediatrics, about the medical benefit of BCI for children with epilepsy)
Prof. Dr. med. M. Siniatchkin (director of the Institute of Medical Psychology at Kiel, about neurofeedback at the neurology and psychiatry)
Dr.-Ing. M. Muthuraman (post-doctor at the Department of Neurology, about brain oscillation)
Dr. C. Guger (working on EEG, ECoG and spike based BCI project for g.tec, giving an introduction to the hard- and software and the possibility of live experiments for participants)
