The Exponent reports that Purdue University is home to a strong multi-disciplinary approach to “brain-interface technology (BCI). BCI is a pioneering technology where recorded neural signals control a computer. Components of the BCI include a computer, electrodes, and implantable circuits. These circuits can record certain brain waves, which then serve specific tasks. People can learn to control these waves to move a cursor on screen, for instance. This technology would have a lot of utility for those with serious health conditions and diseases that hinder movement and communication…
