Brain computer interfaces (BCI) enable users to transform their thoughts into actions without involving voluntary motor movement. This relatively new user interface technology not only offers those with severe neuromotor disabilities a new means to interact with the environment, but can also provides effective and engaging rehabilitation to restore motor or cognitive functions that have been impaired due to disease or trauma. This article summarizes the use of BCI in neurorehabilitation settings based on a review of relevant literature. It also identifies the challenges of BCI and provides recommendations for practical use and future directions for research. BCI could be a promising tool to assist patients undergoing neurological rehabilitation by providing access to environmental control and communication, as well as neurofeedback rehabilitation.
