NeuroAbilities Webinar #6 | BCI At Play: How BCIs can Enrich Lives of Children with Severe Physical Disability

Physical, Video

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) offer a promising potential for thousands of individuals living with severe physical disability to interact with the world using their brain. However, for many children with severe physical disability, there are still too few opportunities to use, interact, and practice with BCI, effectively limiting their fundamental right to participate in their world. This webinar looks at the significant unmet need in translating BCI research and developments to children who could greatly benefit from such technology. The conversation will include insights and discussion on how to approach designing BCIs and neurotechnology for children and why it is critical to include children in advancements of neurotechnology. Watch the webinar.

From Labs to the Marketplace: The Promises of Neurotechnologies for Assistive Technologies

Video

Neurotechnologies have emerged as an exciting new field, promising novel and innovative assistive solutions that can transform the lives of persons with many types of disabilities. While these neurotechnologies, including brain-computer interfaces, have been under development for some time, major players have recently entered the field, accelerating research and development, increasing investments and competition, and showing definite progress towards marketable solutions. This rapid growth has serious implications, which require increased interactions between all members of the field, including persons with disabilities.

Presented by NeuroAbilities, G3ict’s latest think tank program, the session explored some of the most potentially impactful types of solutions that are emerging from labs. The session was part of a hybrid virtual forum held at the M-Enabling Summit on October 5, 2021. Watch the full video recording.

Dry Electrode EEG from the Real to the Virtual World

Physical, Video

In this webinar from Wearable Sensing, Walid Soussou introduces audiences to dry electrode EEG wearables, how they work, and applications for the real world and virtual reality. An overview of the headset design and its signal quality is demonstrated through both resting and ambulatory activities. For more on how the dry electrode headsets work and integrate with BCI tools, watch the webinar on-demand on YouTube.
