Attendance: Participants must attend all sessions
Prereq: None required, but cognitive science or programming helpful
This project-based course will provide students with a basic understanding of neurofeedback and brain-computer interface systems using EEG (electroencephalography). Lectures will cover the design of brain-computer interface (BCI) systems, an introduction to EEG sensing and analysis, design of real-time generative media feedback, and applications of BCI for healthy and physically or neurologically disabled users. Students from complementary disciplines will be assigned to groups of 3 for hands-on development projects working towards the creation of a new BCI concept. Projects will be completed using Max/MSP and Jitter using custom software frameworks developed for the class; hacking and contribution will be encouraged!
There are no specific prerequisites, but students with experience in one of the following areas are encouraged to apply: cognitive science, computer programming for digital media, real-time digital music or video software.
