Abstract

In this study we explored the use of Brain Computer Interface (BCI) and Eye-Tracking (ET) technology both as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tool and to assess cognitive deficits. Specifically, we focused on the possible development of a neuropsychological battery for cognitive assessment based on the integration of BCI and ET tools. To preliminary test this approach we assessed eight healthy subjects with a widespread used cognitive task. AAC and usability of both instruments have also been evaluated with the aim to fine-tune the overall system architecture for clinical use.
