   About the lecture

Nowadays, there are a variety of ways in which the human brain can be connected directly with technology and computers. Some of these are for medical purposes whereas others are more for research and look clearly to the future. Some procedures are well tried and tested whereas others are more speculative and, at this time, purely experimental. This presentation is a guide through the methods involved and a look at where they might
take us.
