Non-invasive Neuroprosthetic

Non-invasive Neuroprosthetic is basically another term for a non-invasive BCI.

Non-invasive BCI or brain computer interface is the version of interface used when only a temporary connection to the brain is required. It is the least accurate of the neuroprosthetic methods, dealing with general brainwaves that are dampened by passing through the skull. However, it is sensitive enough to perform general tasks, and gather non-specific information.

Non invasive neuroprosthetics typically have the longest training curve, because hey detect brainwaves at the point outside the skull, where they have run together, and greatly weakened. As a result, it typically takes considerable conscious effort to drive them.
