Detection and automated interpretation of attention-related or intention-related brain activity carries significant promise for many military and civilian applications. This interpretation of brain activity could provide information about a person’s intended movements, imagined movements, or attentional focus, and thus could be valuable for optimizing or replacing traditional motor-based communication between a person and a computer or other output devices. We describe here the objective and preliminary results of our studies in this area.
