Abstract

The brain-machine interface (BMI) is a new approach to the man-machine interface, which enables us to control machines and to communicate with others without input devices, but directly using brain signals. We describe our integrative approach to develop a BMI system using brain surface electrodes for motor and communication control in severely disabled people. This includes effective brain signal recording, accurate neural decoding, robust robot control, a wireless fully implantable device, a non-invasive evaluation of surgical indications, etc. In addition, the inspection and addressing of neuroethical issues is indispensible when undertaking work in this field.
