Brain-Computer Interface Integrated Augmentative and Alternative Communication

Principal Investigator:
  • Kaela Shea, Holland Bloorview
  • Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital

Project Overview

This projects looks at a new method to interface with communication devices through brain activity. A brain interface provides access for individuals with brain injury, or who are not typically developing, who experience limited voluntary muscle control.  Kaela Shea will investigate the possibility of identifying preference between words as the user visually processes options. This will create faster and easier selection during use of a communication device for more fluid communication.
