FYS 148 Melding Mind and Machine

From gaming to restoring motor activity, Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) has provided humankind with an alternate means to control an external device. Invasive and Non-Invasive BCI devices use detected brain activity to control assistive devices, such as a robotic arm, wheelchair, or game controller. In this seminar we will explore the ethical considerations surrounding the research and development of BCI technology as we continue to blur the lines between human and machine.
