Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) research are emerging in the last few years providing non-invasive, wireless and low-cost ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) devices. The increasing study of neurosciences and the need to respond to specific human brain diseases are two important factors to this evolution.

BCI with fully Implantable Devices - DARPA
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency(DARPA) program aims to develop an implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the human brain and the digital world. The interface would serve as a translator, converting between the electrochemical language used by neurons in the brain and the ones and zeros that constitute the language of information technology.
The goal is to achieve this communications link in a biocompatible device no larger than one cubic centimeter in size, roughly the volume of two nickels stacked back to back.
