There is growing interest in the use of brain signals for communication and operation of devices, in particular, for physically disabled people. Brain states can be detected and translated into actions such as selecting a letter from a virtual keyboard, playing a video game, or moving a robot arm. This chapter presents what is known about the effects of visual stimuli on brain activity and introduces means of monitoring brain activity. Possibilities of brain-controlled interfaces, either with the brain signals as the sole input or in combination with the measured point of gaze, are discussed.
