Brain-Computer Interfaces and Prosthetic Agents

BCIs have been described as devices that “translate thought into action.”  This description seems appropriate since BCIs decode neural signals to extract voluntary motor commands that reflect the person’s movement intentions, and then use the processed signal to control an external device or limb.  In broad terms, we can say that a person has performed an action if bodily movement is caused by the person’s beliefs and desires and is under the person’s control.  An important question to ask is whether BCI-mediated behavior meets these conditions.
