Cognitive Training and the Need for Reality-Based Brain-Computer Interaction: Theoretical Background and Potential Applications
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Computer-aided cognitive training has the potential to be an important tool in the increasingly important fight against dementia and cognitive decline. In order for this potential to be realized a number of challenges must be addressed. This paper presents an overview of the current state of related research with a focus on theoretical results that motivate the use of realistic and adaptive computer applications to address these challenges. This includes consideration of previous research on cognitive training within cognitive neuroscience, recent developments within human-computer interaction (HCI) and previous work relating to brain activity in virtual reality environments. The increasing popularity of reality-based interaction (RBI) and brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) is discussed and the unified concept of reality-based brain-computer interaction (RBBCI) is presented to capture the principles needed for the development of realistic and adaptive systems for cognitive training and to serve as a cornerstone concept for cross-disciplinary development.
