Latest News: Where are we with brain-computer interfaces?

Your brain is crackling with the activity generated by roughly 100 billion neurons and their connections. Scientists are harnessing that power, building brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) that act as a bridge between the brain and assistive devices. As the technology for brain-computer interfaces between people and assistive devices continue to advance, we talked to two BCI experts from Technische Universität Graz and the University of Vienna to understand what the current challenges and exciting new developments are in this field.
