Brain Computer Interfaces: Decision Making and Dystonia Treatment

Closed-loop BCIs for Dystonia Treatment

Despite the chronic, debilitating impact of dystonia, its clinical management remains challenging. Funded by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, National Institutes of Health (NIDCD/NIH R01DC019353), we are conducting a Phase 1 randomized, double-blind, sham-controlled, parallel design clinical trial to assess the feasibility and efficacy of a closed-loop neurofeedback brain-computer interface (BCI) paradigm in patients with laryngeal dystonia.
