The Use of Music and Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) for neurological disorders and mental illnesses

I will be giving a talk on Music & Brain-Computer Interfaces at the 'Workshop Towards the Next-Generation BCI-MedTech Platform' next Wednesday, Oct 31st.

Non-invasive Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology has emerged as a ubiquitous and promising non-drug approach in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders and mental illnesses, empowered by non-invasive sensing devices, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Extensive research, development and clinical trials have demonstrated the enormous potential of BCI technologies for stroke rehabilitation, ADHD treatment, cognitive training, and mental health. Despite the extraordinary progress in this field, there are still technological obstacles in the way. To unleash the full potential of BCI and to achieve greater breakthroughs, we need to conduct in-depth research by capitalizing on the advanced technical developments, promising clinical studies, large datasets, and strong multidisciplinary technical-clinical collaborations in Singapore. We wish to build a next generation BCI- MedTech platform to bridge the technological gaps and develop world-class BCI capabilities with research talents in Singapore.
In this workshop, we wish to bring together academics, researchers and engineers, who are passionate to contribute to this initiative and aspired to make breakthroughs, to exchange ideas, brainstorm, and define the scope of the program.
