Cortical slow potential and mu-rhythm neurofeedback (visual, auditory) as a communication tool for locked-in patients ("Thought Translation Device, BCI2000"). Event-related potentials (P300) for communication and diagnosis in locked-in states. Development of a flexible general purpose brain-computer interface (BCI) system that can incorporate any of the relevant signals, analyses, and operating formats and can be configured for laboratory or clinical needs and to use the system to compare, contrast, and combine relevant brain signals and signal processing options during BCI operation and thereby develop a standard protocol for applying BCI technology to the needs of individual users. The system is applied and documented to address specific communication needs of people with severe motor disabilities and show that BCI technology is both useful to and actually used by these individuals. Specifically, field studies at the home of potential end-users of BCI technology in the locked-in state.
Assessment of brain activity in different states of neurodegenerative disease during and definition of the “sine qua non” condition for BCI use. Identifying markers for successful BCI use.
Combining Virtual Reality and BCI based Neurofeedback for the treatment of chronic pain.
Assessment of depression, quality of life, and coping strategies in locked-in patients. Executive functioning in patients with neurodegenerative diseases. Ethical considerations on life sustaining treatment and the withdrawal thereof in non-responsive patients.
Mindfulness based interventions for patients with chronic disease, specifically those with chronic obstructive lung disease and pain. Construct validity and side effect of mindfulness.
