A brain-computer interface (bci) is a system allowing for communication between the brain and the external environment. It is independent from any peripheral neural or muscular activity and it directly converts brain activity into a computerized command. In this chapter, we present the recent progress in the development of bcis. Moreover, we discuss clinical applications in lis patients and studies performed in patients recovering from coma.
