The brain–machine interface (BMI), also alternately referred to as the brain–computer interface (BCI), has emerged as an interdisciplinary field with practical applications to many disciplines, such as brain research, medical rehabilitation, neuroergonomics and smart environment, neuromarketing and advertisement, education and self-regulation, games and entertainment, and security and authentication. This involves a range of diverse data acquisition techniques recording brain signals from the scalp, subdural, subcortical, and deep brain structures. Divided into invasive and non-invasive categories, these signals include electrocorticograms (ECoG), intracortical signals such as local field potentials (LFP), and multi- and single-unit activities (neuronal spikes) for the invasive category, and electroencephalograms (EEG), magnetoencephalograms (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) for the non-invasive category. These signals require sophisticated processing before they can be used in the application area of BMI/BCI. There are numerous challenges in the pipeline from signal acquisition to application. This Special Issue thus aims to collate cutting-edge original research as well as comprehensive survey articles targeting recent trends, applications, and challenges of BMI/BCI.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
