Computer-Brain Interface in Locked-In Syndrome

  In a recent study, 4 patients with completely locked-in syndrome responded to yes or no questions by thinking their answers allowing them to communicate.
  Researchers used a non-invasive brain-computer interface to assess changes in frontocentral cortical oxygenation which was measured using functional near-infrared spectroscopy to determine a patients' answers.
