Investigating Brain-Computer Interface and Virtual Reality in Skill Acquisition: An Experimental Study

This project aims to explore the effectiveness of combining Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and Virtual Reality (VR) technologies to enhance the process of skill acquisition (SA). Individually, these technologies have both demonstrated their ability to aid in SA, through techniques such as neurofeedback and training simulations for dangerous occupations (e.g., surgical procedures) BCI and VR (BCI-VR), when effectively combined, may have the potential to keep the user in an optimal state of engagement and challenge with a task, which may lead to better learning outcomes through higher levels of enjoyment, more time spent practicing the task and constant improvements through optimal difficulty.
