Niels Birbaumer is one of the leading figures in the history of brain-computer interfaces (BCI), which are direct communication devices between the brain and a computer. Birbaumer has been dealing with BCIs for as much as forty years. He believes in the power of BCIs, a power that is based on human imagination and is used to treat brain disturbances. The director of the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurology in Tübingen was awarded the prestigious Leibniz Prize in 1995 for his pioneering work on BCIs. The former director of the Institute of Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurology in Tübingen, now at the Wyss Center in Geneva, was awarded the prestigious Leibniz Prize in 1995 for his pioneering work on BCIs.
