**The Brain** in Brain Computer Interface **The Brain** in Brain Computer Interface Presentation Transcript

  • **The Brain** in Brain Computer Interface An Do, MD Department of Neurology University of California, Irvine
  •  
  • The Brain
    • Source of thought, behaviors, and perceptions
    • Composed of billions of neurons in interconnected networks
    View slide
  • Brain Anatomy
    • 3 Major Parts
      • Cerebrum
        • Frontal lobe
        • Temporal lobe
        • Parietal lobe
        • Occipital lobe
      • Brainstem
      • Cerebellum
    Frontal Lobe Parietal Lobe Temporal Lobe Occipital Lobe Cerebellum Brainstem View slide
  • Movement Sensation Coordination
  • Left vs Right Brain
  • The Nervous System
  • Brain Function Integration
    • Integration of all brain functions and neurological processes is similar to how multi-core computer processors work.
  • Diseases of the Nervous System
    • In such a complicated system, if any part is damaged, many problems can occur.
    • Neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroscientists study these problems
  • Stroke
  • Seizures
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Dementia
  • Brain Cancer
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Neurological Injury
    • Injury to the nervous system often causes irreversible damage
      • results in disability, sometimes devastating
      • occasionally results in very bizarre symptoms
    • Neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuroscientists are actively studying brain injury to arrive at new understanding of the brain and new treatments
      • the Brain Computer Interface is one such example
  • Why study the brain and nervous system ?
    • It’s the control center !
    • There are many things even scientists still don’t know
    • Search for better understanding of brain function and brain repair
    • The answer to these problems will rely not only on the current generation of physicians and scientists alone, but also on future generations to come
