Enhancement of a Braingate System

Anju S Pillai

Abstract: In 2003, the biotech company Cyber kinetics was developed a device called braingate. This device is used to help those with severe disabilities such as those who have lost the control of their limbs and other bodily functions. There is a computer chip which is implanted into the brain of the patient, to monitor the brain activity. This device can recognize patients intention by analyzing their brain activity. This technique is based on mind uploading or mind copying or mind transfer. The principle operation of this system is that the generated brain signals are not able to sent to the arms, hands and legs. These signals are interpreted and translated to cursor movements. But it is very risky surgery and expensive. Making use of arduino can reduce the complexity of the system.

Keywords: brain computer interface, brain signal acquisition, signal processing, mind uploading, Arduino
