Special Issue "Brain-Computer Interfaces: Current Trends and Novel Applications"
A special issue of Brain Sciences (ISSN 2076-3425).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 July 2016).
Verbal or non-verbal information exchange is the basis of human communication. However, millions of people worldwide lose this fundamental ability of communication because of accidents or inherited neuromuscular disorders, leading to restrictions in even the basic communication needs. A Brain-Computer Interface (BCI), which is an electroencephalography (EEG) based communication, can enable such physically challenged people to achieve greater independence by making technology accessible. BCI emerged few decades ago, and is now maturing towards being more realistic and practically plausible. The main goal of this Special Issue is to show the latest advances in BCIs, including, but not limited to, neurotechnologies, tele-services, development of communication infrastructure to support practical BCIs, signal processing algorithms, graphical interfaces, and novel paradigms.
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 papers will be 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. Brain Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
