UPDATE: Reviewing this page again in April 2009, it's horribly out of date, and many of the links are broken, I know, but the page seems to get a lot of hits, so it's probably worth leaving up for now. I add some new stuff occasionally too. I should add that I am not actively working in this area. I'm just an interested observer.  —Toby Howard

Please find a first impression of this technology at www.gtec.at/products/g.BCIsys/bci.htm. g.tec also provides training lectures for brain-computer interface communication in PDF format."

Old stuff... from as far back as 1995...

the brain-computer interface

This page was once selected as a New Scientist Planet Science Site Of The Day.

This page offers some introductory links to sources of information on the Web a bout the Brain-Computer Interface. I've written a couple of (popular science) articles about this:
