Combining BCI with Virtual Reality: Towards New Applications and Improved BCI

Abstract : Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) are communication systems which can convey messages through brain activity alone. Recently BCIs were gaining interest among the virtual reality (VR) community since they have appeared as promising interaction devices for virtual environments (VEs). Especially these implicit interaction techniques are of great interest for the VR community, e.g., you are imaging the movement of your hand and the virtual hand is moving, or you can navigate through houses or museums by your thoughts alone or just by looking at some highlighted objects. Furthermore, VE can provide an excellent testing ground for procedures that could be adapted to real world scenarios, especially patients with disabilities can learn to control their movements or perform specific tasks in a VE. Several studies will highlight these interactions.
