Study aimed at the design and development of an EMG/EEG (elecromyographic/electroencephalographic) human-computer interface that employs biosignals gathered from the cerebrum of an individual with severe motor disabilities to control 2-dimensional (2-D) cursor movements. The keyboard is on screen, and the keys are activated through the cerebral interface. The system is described, and results are presented from its initial use by three individuals. The device was created in line with the mission of the Assistive Technology Act of 1998.
