Our research interests include using neurophysiological signals to decode the cognitive or affective state of humans interacting with technology. By developing novel Brain-Computer interfaces (BCIs), this group aims to automatically assess information about the users’ state to augment and automatically adapt human-computer interaction. The leader of this group, Prof. Dr. Thorsten O. Zander is considered to be a pioneer in the field of passive BCIs, which he defined in 2008, and he is the co-founder and co-leader of the Society for Neuroadaptive Technology.
