"The data reported in this paper were collected in a real world setting and demonstrate that the BCIs can revolutionize the management of several neurological disorders.

This achievement would represent a dramatic improvement of their quality of life." - Rossella Spataro, MD, Neurologist at the ALS Clinical Research Center, University of Palermo, Italy and co-author of this publication in the Journal of Neuroscience.
