Brain-Computer Interface as Networking Entity in Body Area Networks

Abstract : Modern BCIs are non-invasive, wireless, wearable and EEG-based systems capable to transduce brain signals into cognitive information and stream it out in form of data. BCIs have rarely been considered as part of the network. Thus, data communication approaches have not even tried. The consequence is a suboptimal communication in terms of performance, usability and reliability. In this paper we present BCI as a paradigm in Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) that interfaces multisensorial sources with the user brain. The BCI-WBAN concept treats cognitive processes as communication end-points in which sensorial information is consumed by cognitive processes. In the context of WBAN, BCIs implement the functionalities of the lower layers of communication open system: signal transduction into data, access control to the physical and cognitive media and data transmission. The BCI-WBAN paradigm extends the scope of WBAN from mere biosignal sensing by adding interpretation of neural correlates of cognitive information.
