Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are systems that help translate brain activity, which is typically measured using electroencephalography (EEG), into commands for controlling a device without relying on the signals from the peripheral nerves or muscles. BCIs have shown high potential in healthcare applications. For instance, they have been implemented in mobility or assistive tools, vision restoration devices and cognitive or motor rehabilitation systems, which represent a wide variety of applications. This chapter will discuss the recent advances of BCIs in healthcare, focusing on the work made by female researchers, as well as some of the current limitations and future perspectives.
