A P300 Brain Computer Interface Keyboard to Control Assistive Technology For Use by People With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
People with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) will use a P300 based brain computer interface (BCI) keyboard to type in assistive technology devices. The results of this study will be compared with a previous study of a P300 BCI keyboard used by healthy volunteers.
