Direct brain interfaces can detect minute changes in the brain?s physical properties, such as electrophysiological signals or blood oxygenation. Unlike traditional input devices, DBIs can provide control channels that do not depend on muscle movement. Researchers are hopeful that DBIs will provide assistive technologies for people with severe physical disabilities.
