EEG biofeedback

EEG biofeedback is a type of limited Neurofeedback that takes place non-invasively. As the name implies, it utilises EEG (Electroencephalography) or MOST-EEG exclusively, via electrodes placed on the outside of the scalp, to monitor brainwave activity.

The type and intensity of brainwave picked up is then fed into an activity device of some sort, which creates an action based on the brainwave input received. The goal is usually to have the device perform a specific action that will only occur when the person's brainwaves reach a specified type and modulation.

Existing examples of such devices include the relaxation game Mindball, and the attention-trainer MindFlex, or the VR interface EPOC which uses EEG biofeedback along with other methods to allow a person's rough thoughts to control their avatar inside of a VR.

This shows what is essentially a full sensory immersion LAN. An eight person, totally self contained full-immersion VR machine. As shown, the interface method is direct neural biofeedback; the staple for the Matrix universe. Each of the person's brains are connected to the system via their brainstem, allowing full two way bodily sensory stimulus. However, there is no connection to the greater internet.
