Brain-Computer Interface Workshop for Control, Assessment and Rehabilitation

9:30 AM – 3:30 PM
June 27, 2018
Skyview room, Creese Student Center
3201 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA

About the workshop

During this workshop, we will demonstrate major concepts in Brain Computer Interface (BCI) systems, including types of sensors, signal processing, and applications. New trends like embodiment, coma assessment and communication, stroke rehabilitation, and invasive ECoG based systems will also be explained. This year we will show the BCI Hackathon series br41n.io, the new wireless Unicorn, the new fNIRS-EEG device, new results of ECoG real-time face decoding and neurorehabilitation technology.
