Contributor Stephanidis, C. (editor) Antona, M. (editor) Publication year 2013 Abstract While a BCI usually aims to provide an alternative communication channel for disabled users who have difficulties to move or to speak, we focused on BCIs as a way to retrieve and use information about an individual’s cognitive or affective state without requiring any effort or intention of the user to convey this information. Providing only an extra channel of information rather than a replacement of certain functions, such BCIs could be useful for healthy users as well. We describe the results of our studies on neurophysiological correlates of attention, workload and emotion, as well as our efforts to include physiological variables. We found different features in EEG to be indicative of attention and workload, while emotional state may be better measured by physiological variables like heart rate and skin conductance. Potential applications are described. We argue that major challenges lie in hardware and generalization issues Subject HumanPCS - Perceptual and Cognitive SystemsBSS - Behavioural and Societal SciencesHealthHealthy LivingPassive BCIUser state monitoringAttentionWorkloadEmotionEEGMEGNIRSPhysiological measuresBCIUser state monitoringElectroencephalographyHuman computer interactionPhysiologyToolsBrain computer interface To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:1afd3d17-38d1-42a7-924c-39811dcdaa1a DOI https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-39188-0-66 TNO identifier 475900 Source 7th International Conference on Universal Access in Human-Computer Interaction: Design Methods, Tools, and Interaction Techniques for eInclusion, UAHCI 2013, Held as Part of 15th International Conference on Human-Computer Interaction, HCI 2013, 21 July 2013 through 26 July 2013, Las Vegas, NV, 615-622 Series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (including subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics) Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
