Until the past decade, work in the burgeoning field of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) was largely focused on feasibility studies, information transfer rate, and single user scenarios. As the field matures, it is growing to encompass various approaches and applications that transcend the original paradigms. BCIs have slowly but steadily moved outside strictly controlled laboratory conditions with P300, SSVEP, motor imagery — amongst other now well established methods — and into more realistic yet more complex areas such as neurorehabilitation and games.
This is an exciting time in BCI research, development and applications. As new areas and applications merge and emerge with BCIs at their core, some will inevitably be discarded while others will flourish. It is now timely to take stock of the most recent transitions in BCI applications and feedback paradigms and to provide the BCI research community with coverage of what might become more mainstream in the near and distant future. A special issue on the Emergence of Novel BCI Applications is therefore warranted. To this end, we invite authors to submit original research papers in BCIs and BCI-related areas, with an emphasis on novel and/or emerging techniques and applications.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• neurolinguistic BCIs
• clinical applications
• multidimensional control
• novel feedback paradigms
• exogenous/Endogenous Auditory BCI
• BCIs for independent living
• novel cognitive states
• long term BCI use
• BCIs and learning/plasticity
• machine-to-human BCIs
• collaborative (multi-user) BCIs

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 600 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
