Imagining bodily movement leads to an activation pattern in the brain. Electroencephalography (EEG) measures the electrical brain activity through surface electrodes on the scalp. It also registers the activation pattern in the case of imagined movements. This new project aims to develop an electronic brain-computer interface. This interface can derive the applicable imagined movements from the recorded brain activity patterns. A robotic arm or paralysed muscle group should be controlled by thought. This control may lead to facilitation of movements.
