As a direct connection between the cortical activity of brain and external devices, the brain-Computer Interfaces [BCI] can decode, interact, translate and process useful information from thoughts and actions to simulate the behavior of human beings, and then exhibit intelligent algorithms to drive the brain-machine devices. With the developments of neuro-robotics technologies, Brain Computer Interfaces [BCIs] have been progressively designed to allow computer devices to accomplish complicated tasks in an intelligent way by exploring various cognitive effects and intentions. Moreover, Brain Computer Interface [BCI] is a promising technology to leverage permissive intelligence in brain sensing devices, behavioral analytics and cognitive processing by effectively using the deep neural network architectures.
Brain Computer Interface [BCI] paves way to the new innovations in neuro-rehabilitation techniques to enhance quality of life of patients to achieve an enhanced cognition and perception. Recently, due to the rapid advances in neural networks, Brain Computer Interface [BCI] are integrated with the controlled virtual environments for treating people with disabilities. The propitious characteristics of BCI such as high accuracy, rapid response time and multi-functionality creates a significant breakthrough in various smart medical applications. In the near future, Brain Computer Interface will gain the capability to restore and enhance the neural features by connecting it to a computer system.

This special issue recent advances, challenges, and future application perspectives of Brain Computer Interface [BCI] in smart medical applications.

Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Brain computer interfaces design architectures
  • Ubiquitous brain sensing technologies
  • New algorithms and models to enable brain computer interactions
