The brain is a magnificent machine. All of us in the neurorehabilitation field recognize this. An important area within this field is electroencephalography (EEG) research, which attempts to map the electrical behavior of the brain.
These signals are also currently being used to try to control electronic equipment via BCI. It is precisely in this type of interfaces that the BMSI Lab at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche is specialized, led by Professor José María Azorín.
In the research discussed in this post, they are trying to evaluate the performance of a BCI to control an exoskeleton (our Exo-H3) taking into account the dominance of each brain hemisphere. In this way, they intend to study if there is a specialization by hemisphere during motor imagery (mental representation of a movement without necessarily having to actually perform it).
The results suggest that the accuracy of the dominant hemisphere is somewhat higher than in the non-dominant hemisphere. This, for example, may lead to greater efficiency in this type of controls by pointing to a reduced need for samples and therefore for electrodes.
This type of studies are very interesting as they are the basis for the improvement of the technology and its application to future advances.
