Brain-Computer-Interface Enables Coma Patients To Communicate With The Outside World And More Exact Diagnoses
Tue 22 Jun 2010 - A great deal of experience is required to give a definitive diagnosis of the state of consciousness of a coma patient, particularly since difficult ethical questions are linked to the classification. Innovative technologies such as the brain-computer-interface may now allow better diagnosis in coma patients of whether consciousness is still existent and how pronounced it is, and for the first time also enable communication with those affected," says Prof. Gustave Moonen (Lüttich, Belgium), speaking New developments in the field of "brain-computer-interface" (BCI) offer important advances here. Numerous research groups around the world are working on further developing this innovation. An important project funded by the EU goes by the name of "Decoder".
