Abstract
There is at present a lack of portable, practical and non-invasive sensing platforms to: a. understand, detect and present neural events triggered by narratives; b. to derive cognitive interpretations of a story and link them to semantic interpretations, the story"s function and/or the storyteller"s intent. Based on the Phase I design of a system, termed"Cognitive Capture", to enable the unobtrusive capture and decoding of neural activity elicited by natural events and stimuli, the proposed Phase II efforts aim to develop a novel EEG-based sensing platform , and bestow it with pioneering narrative-focused analytical tools.
