This work proposes an overview of the recent applications of brain-computer interface (BCI) technology for pediatric populations. Current BCIs have demonstrated the possibility to provide an alternative communication and interaction channel for people suffering from severe motor disabilities. However, to date research has been predominantly conducted in adults, only a few systems have been applied to pediatric population. A survey was carried out to show the ongoing trends of using BCI systems with children. We discuss three areas of applications where BCI might be helpful to children - "Communication Control", "BCI Gaming for Neurofeedback Training" and "Rehabilitation" - highlighting the current limitations and the possible future challenges.

Abstract

This work proposes an overview of the recent applications of brain-computer interface (BCI) technology for pediatric populations. Current BCIs have demonstrated the possibility to provide an alternative communication and interaction channel for people suffering from severe motor disabilities. However, to date research has been predominantly conducted in adults, only a few systems have been applied to pediatric population. A survey was carried out to show the ongoing trends of using BCI systems with children. We discuss three areas of applications where BCI might be helpful to children - "Communication Control", "BCI Gaming for Neurofeedback Training" and "Rehabilitation" - highlighting the current limitations and the possible future challenges.
