My primary research interest is in the domain of brain-computer interfaces. The goal of the project is developing BCI for ALS patients, that does not rely on the low-level sensor and motor processes, that are often unavailable to ALS. Instead, we propose to use high-level cognitive processes closely connected with consciousness itself. We propose to train ALS patients to modulate their brain rhythms in the precuneus by means of neurofeedback and use that as a basis for BCI.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
