Abstract

Thousands of people worldwide are suffering from syndromes like “Locked-in Syndrome” and “Akinetic Mutism” rendering them disabled and dependent on others for each and every things in their lives. Additionally many are amputated due to injuries and lose their capabilities to move.They are mostly bed-ridden and have to be moved around in a wheelchair, always accompanied by atleast a person. Some might lose their capabilities to communicate and are only able to move their eyes. Brain- machine interface has been considered a salvation for such individuals. Considerable research has been done in this field both by private and government funded research centers. When we think or express emotions or any other feelings, the neurons are fired and this is captured from the scalp by EEG method using Brain Sensor. Each emotion has its own characteristic potential and it is used to differentiate between them. The output from EEG can be manipulated/processed to provide discreet set of values for each emotion/state of mind. The values are used to control machines and building a working Brain-Machine interface.
