Can I read what the person thinking through electrodes or something similar?

I take it you want to use eye movements for data input (rather than reading people's thoughts, which would be silly to consider). It's not the greatest idea, efficiency wise, but may have its ...

Converting human's memory into digital data

I am wondering whether converting someone's memory into digital data is possible or not. Not today, but it is an active area of research. One non-profit foundation, headed by computational ...

Is language an abstract concept that is voiced out though a national tongue?

While there appears to be ongoing research and debate on the nature of language in the human mind, some pertinent theories relate to the question here. At the earliest level of linguistic learning, ...

Strange synchronized brain pulses on EEG using OpenBCI Cyton board

Turns out these pulses are due to software latency in the OpenBCI GUI. One particular widget, the headshot widget, uses a lot of the CPU causing packet delay, and leads to the pulse pattern. Once ...

How do I find Computer Science-Focused Cognitive Science Labs for Research?

The field you're talking about is probably computational neuroscience. In general, the advice I would give is that the department you are in doesn't much matter. There are people who study ...

Classification of EEG Signals

BCI has rougly two different approaches to extract features. I will address them both. When EEG is recorded, you can see an pattern of activity in a particular channel over time. This is the time-...

Can brainwaves from EEG be used to measure enjoyment of media?

I think the question whether this experiment will give you useful data can be split into two parts: Does the EEG reflect the emotional state ? Does the stimulus (media,pictures) induce such an ...

Brain-computer interface with EEG: how to name imaginary movement of a non-self object?

As far as I know, brain-computer interfaces based on EEG use motor-cortex responses by asking the subject to imagine body movements. E.g., a left-arm movement imagination would translate to moving the ...

Brain-computer interface with EEG: how to name imaginary movement of a non-self object?

I agree with Christiaan. Similar movements are stored nearby and are thus difficult to distinguish (see How are movements stored in the brain? ), even more so with the spatial resolution of EEG. What ...

Text-to-brain literature?

We don't have a well tested or accepted model of how specific items are encoded in the cortex, so text to brain is still far off. However, it is possible to send information to the brain. Ramirez et ...

What electrical stimuli do brain implants use?

Short answer The track record of cortical visual prosthetics is limited. However, a lot more is known on auditory prostheses (mainly cochlear implants) and retinal prostheses. In these implants, ...

How to track eye movements with electrodes?

Detecting eye movements is generally referred to as oculometry. Oculometry can be performed using your suggested approach, namely with electrophysiological techniques. In this case the recordings ...

How much our visual limitations are instrument(eye)-based, and how much are they brain-based?

The distinction that you draw between "instrument"/eye and brain is not particularly clear, and to some people it makes more sense to think of the eye as part of the brain. Regardless, let me try and ...
