Wikipedia, Jan. 12, 2007 (Brain-computer interface (BCI), sometimes called a direct neural interface or a brain-machine interface is a direct communication pathway between human or animal brain (or brain cell culture) and an external device. In one-way BCIs, computers either accept commands from the brain or send signals to it (For example, to restore vision) but not both. Two-way BCIs would allow brains and external devices to exchange information in both directions but have yet to be successfully implanted in animals or humans)
