Intra-operative interaction with computer systems is a challenge because of spatial constraints and also because of the need for sterility. Therefore touchless interfaces are interesting alternatives to classical interaction devices. A device that can read and convert brain signals into control and communication commands is called brain-computer-interface (BCI). In this short report we present a study on the performance of a commercial, low-cost BCI (Emotiv EPOC) for software control in surgery and intervention and examine the influence of the already existing cognitive load caused by the medical procedure itself.
