Brain-Based Communication for “Locked-in” Patients

Bettina Sorger, Associate Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience

In the so-called “locked-in” syndrome, fully conscious patients have lost the ability to communicate as a
consequence of severe motor paralysis. To help patients affected by this devastating condition, motor-independent communication through brain-computer interfacing is being developed. This allows affected patients to communicate by means of their brain signals. Bettina Sorger will tell you how.
