The BCI translates human brain activity into codes that can be used by a computer for many purposes. Traditionally, the BCI has been used to detect brain signals so as to translate intentions into commands for a machine. However, technological advancements have allowed the exploration of other BCI applications, thanks to improved wearability, flexibility and reliability, with high ecological validity. In particular, applied social neuroscience is a fascinating horizon that BCI-based studies have started to explore, moving from individual towards multi-brain applications. Thus, instead of studying one person at a time, more people may be connected to investigate what happens when brains work together. From this perspective, a paradigm called hyperfeedback has been developed as a way to extend BCI neurofeedback studies to multi-perspective neuroscience.
The aim of this Special Issue is to collect basic and applied BCI studies in heterogenous settings, which address single- and multi-brain applications. We aim to collect papers that can together demonstrate the innovative trends in BCI studies.
Papers reporting theoretical models, technical innovations, psychological research and artificial intelligence applications are welcome. Targeted reviews, original studies, clinical research and everyday life applications can be submitted.

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. 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 2200 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.
