Abstract

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) are systems which can provide people affected by severe neuromuscular diseases with a new and easy way to communicate with the world. The aim of this study is to use a new administration method based on BCI technology to assess cognitive ability in disabled people. The protocol was applied on 15 subjects who can't or have difficult using traditional paper based test. The method, based on a SSVEP BCI system, was previously validated on 20 healthy subjects. The previous validation and the test results on disabled patient show the reliability of BCI in administering cognitive test; BCI doesn't affect results but adds further data that can be used to analyze other cognitive tasks in addition to those measured by the test.
