Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) research are emerging in the last few years providing non-invasive, wireless and low-cost ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) devices. The increasing study of neurosciences and the need to respond to specific human brain diseases are two important factors to this evolution.

Wireless EEG invasive electrode
One more (BIG) step to Brain-Computer Interfaces: Australian researchers at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and the University of Melbourne have developed an electrode that can record brain activity from the motor cortex, without the need for invasive brain surgery.
The electrode, called a stentrode, is implanted into a blood vessel in the brain using minimally invasive surgical techniques. The electrode can record signals from the motor cortex and transmit them wirelessly through the skin to a device outside the body.
