Pattie Maes and Nataliya Kosmyna of the Fluid Interfaces group, alongside collaborators, co-edited a recent special issue of Frontiers in Neuroscience titled, "Neurotechnologies for Human Augmentation." Maes and Kosmyna also co-edited an editorial piece in the same issue.  

The special issue, co-edited with Davide Valeriani (Neurable Inc.), Hasan Ayaz (Drexel University), and Riccardo Poli (University of Essex, Colchester), presents a collection of 12 contributions on recent advances in the development of non-invasive BCIs for human augmentation, with a particular emphasis on brain stimulation and neural decoding. The overview reads, in part:

"Neurotechnologies combine neuroscience and engineering to build tools for studying, repairing, and enhancing brain function. Traditionally, researchers have used neurotechnologies, such as Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), as assistive devices, for example to allow locked-in patients to communicate. In the last few decades, brain imaging devices, such as electroencephalography (EEG) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), have become more portable and inexpensive, paving the way to innovative applications of neurotechnologies."
