Brain Fingerprinting

Overview of Dr. Farwell's Brain Fingerprinting Invention

Brain-Computer Interface -- BCI

Dr. Farwell and Emanuel Donchin invented the first EEG-based brain-computer interface (BCI). This system uses brainwaves -- electrical brain activity measured non-invasively from the scalp -- to allow an individual to communicate directly from the brain to a computer and speech synthesizer. 

Here is Dr. Farwell's seminal peer-reviewed publication on the first EEG-based brain-computer interface (BCI):   Farwell LA, Donchin E (1988) Talking off the top of your head: toward a mental prosthesis utilizing event-related brain potentials. Electroencephalography and Clinical Neurophysiology 70:510–523. DOI: 10.1016/0013-4694(88)90149-6.

Brainwave-Based Invention for
Early Detection of Alzheimer's

Dr. Farwell invented and patented a method for using brainwaves in the early detection of Alzheimers disease and other cognitively degenerative conditions, and as  a method for objectively and scientifically evaluating the effectiveness of treatments for Alzheimer's and traumatic brain injury. 

Here is Dr. Farwell's patent on his Method for Brain Fingerprinting, Measurement, Assessment and Analysis of Brain Function.
