Brain Machine Interface and Neuroimaging
Brain machine interfaces (BMIs) directly connect brain activity and devices outside the brain for such purposes as sensory substitution, motor compensation and enhancement, neurorehabilitation, suppression of maladaptive neural circuits, and treatment for brain lesions and neurological and psychiatric disorders. A BMI usually consists of some of the following electrical, mechanical, and computing elements: a brain activity measurement system (electrodes, amplifier, AD converter, etc.), a computer for decoding brain information and/or controlling stimuli to the brain, an effector system (prosthetic limb, rehabilitation robot, computer cursor, etc.), and a neural stimulation system.
