Brief Summary

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) use sensors to record brain activity and translate that activity into user-intended commands, which can be used to control a device. This project aims to understand what individuals with multiple sclerosis would like to see in a BCI so that it is most beneficial to them. This 15-minute survey asks participants to describe their experience with multiple sclerosis and review a range of potential BCI systems.

Inclusion criteria

Participants will need to be:
• living in Australia,
• have been diagnosed with MS and
• be over 18 years old.
