Brain-Computer Interface seminar and hands-on workshop, Sept. 11

Join Dr. Melanie Fried-Oken, professor of neurology, pediatrics, and biomedical engineering, for the Brain-Computer Interface symposium at the Center for Health & Healing on September 11, 2012. Dr. Fried-Oken’s NIH-funded research team is sponsoring the event.

Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology is a fascinating field of neuroscience that has seen tremendous advances in recent years. Simply put, BCI technology provides a direct communication link between the brain and an external device that has the ability to detect, analyze, and classify changes in thought patterns. This technology has incredible therapeutic potential for patients who do not have the ability to interact or perceive aspects of their environment.

This workshop is intended for anyone who has an interest in learning more about BCI communication, and particularly for those interested in applying BCI technology within their field of expertise.

The event is free, but registration is required. To learn more and to register, download the workshop flyer and complete the registration form on the second page.
