User Optimization of a Brain Computer Interface Communication Applications Suite

Funding Source: National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, National Institutes of Health (subcontract with Oregon Health & Science University)
Principal Investigators: Scott Spaulding
Collaborative partner: Melanie Fried-Oken, Oregon Health & Science University

Project Summary:
This project involves developing and evaluating an innovative brain-computer interface (BCI) for individuals with severe speech and physical impairments. The aims of the project include (a) developing a BCI that increases communication rates, (b) testing and refining the system through user feedback and input from experts in augmentative and alternative communications (AAC), and (c) evaluating the tool in natural and clinical settings. As part of this BCI evaluation, Haring Center researchers provide guidance in single-case intervention research designs and data analysis.
