Brain-Computer Interfaces: Principles and Practice. This book is intended to provide an introduction to and summary of essentially all major aspects of BCI. Review of “Brain-Computer Interfaces, principles and practise”, edited by Jonathan R. Wolpaw and Elizabeth Winter Wolpaw. Maureen Clerc. Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) are a new kind of human- machine interfaces suring brain signals and translate them directly into control commands. Such a system allows people .. synchronization and desynchronization: basic principles.

Feature Extraction Dean J. Krusienski, Dennis J. Feature Translation Dennis J. McFarland and Dean J.
Mason, Brendan Z. Likewise, the chapter on acquisition outside of the brain only involves recordings of electromagnetic nature, and not fNIRS. Feature extraction logically follows acquisition, in chapter 7.
More complex notions such as wavelets, or independent component analysis, are briefly sketched. This can constitute a useful primer to signal processing for readers with a clinical background. The same can be said about chapter 8, an introduction to feature translation, i.
Most of the commonly used methods linear discriminant analysis, Naive Bayes, Support Vector Machines , are presented at a fast pace, without resorting to much mathematical formalism. Because of the great diversity of methods and techniques presented, these two chapters could have benefited from some synthetic tables or diagrams, to orient the reader.
This material is less academic than the preceding two chapters, and it is valuable to find it here very clearly exposed. Chapter 11 on BCI applications makes a principled transition towards the last two parts of the book: Each of these chapters provide very detailed accounts of either successes reached or shortcomings remaining to be overcome. A remark on cultural relativism could have been interesting, because hierarchies of needs certainly differ according to cultural habits and country of residence.
Chapter 20, on clinical evaluation of BCI, comprises pragmatic advice for putting BCI into the hands of patients and their caregivers. The sobering fact that BCI may be considered an orphan technology is not overlooked. Chapter 23 reviews possible applications of BCI research directed to the general population, for instance in augmented cognition, or videogames.
Some words of advice are provided to guide future research in the areas where the problems are considered the most crucial by the authors: A reference book on Brain Computer Interfaces was lacking up to now, and this excellent one is bound to be extremely useful to the researchers working in this interdisciplinary field.
The book has a clear dedication to designing BCIs that actually serve the needs of the disabled population. At present, once BCIs have achieved good results within research laboratories, they can be tested on populations of patients, through clinical studies.
Proof has been made by more than twenty independent studies that BCI can help certain patients e.
Actual appropriation of the technique by patients will develop when the technology becomes affordable and robust, when it is recognized by the healthcare system as a viable technique, and when it becomes distributed by privately held companies.
