Brain-computer interface technology (BCI) emerged five decades ago as a new communication technology to permit subjects with severe neuromuscular disorders to communicate and interact with the rest of the world. The rapid development of wireless technology has opened the door for out-of-the-lab applications, such as in the field of entertainment, neurosciences, neurogaming, industry, education, and neuromarketing. More and more new applications of brain-computer interfaces technology are emerging, including implementations in motor imagery.
This Special Issue on “Brain-computer Interfaces in Neuroscience: Progress and Challenges” will explore the implementations and prospects of both non-invasive and invasive brain-computer interface technology. The scope of the release includes:
- BCI technology,
- machine learning in BCI technology,
- motor imagery with BCI,
- analysis of biomedical signals for BCI,
- neurosciences, modeling, and neuroinformatics,
- biomedical engineering, control and robotics, and computer engineering in BCI technology.

A Causal-Comparative Study of the Neurological Foundation for Intelligence
Dr. Chuck Easttom
There are a number of published studies regarding the neurological substrate of intelligence. Studies have focused on brain volume, genetic markers, and other physiological metrics that can be correlated with intelligence. The current study is a meta-analysis of published literature regarding the relationship of white matter/glial cells and cognitive function. By performing a meta-analysis of multiple studies, more definitive conclusions can be posited, than could be done with a single study. The current study, drawing on multiple sources, clearly demonstrates a correlation between the development of glial cells and cognitive function. Furthermore, the current study shows a correlation between various pathological declines in cognitive function and a decrease in the health and function of glial cells.
