Part of the The International Library of Ethics, Law and Technology book series (ELTE, volume 12)


In this chapter 20 former research subjects in brain–computer interface (BCI) studies answer questions concerning their experiences with this novel technology. They talk about their state of information, their expectations, their achievements, and also their disappointments. The answers display a wide spectrum of attitudes and personal assessments ranging from enthusiastic appreciation to skeptical reservation. Many users mention the current shortcomings but also stress the potential of the tested technology.
