Brain Computer Interface Technology Survey



Thank you for your interest in this survey! I am Sven Feldmann, a computer science student at Paderborn University. Your responses will improve our understanding of the acceptance of commercial Brain Computer Interface technology (this will be explained later and be referred to as BCIs from now on). If you have any inquiries, contact me at


Procedure and Participation:

This survey will be conducted online and will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Complete surveys can receive compensation of 3.00£/3.50€. This compensation is optional. The choice to accept this payment is entirely up to you. You have the option of receiving the payment via Prolific, a scientific recruitment platform, or directly from the University of Paderborn. 
If you choose the option to receive payment via Prolific, you will need to set up an account using the link we will provide later. Alternatively, if you opt for payment via the University of Paderborn, we will direct you to a separate survey to ensure privacy, where personal information such as your name, place of residence, and bank details will be collected, as these are required for the standard procedure of paying study participants by the University of Paderborn.


The possible risks for the participants in this online study are those associated with computer tasks, such as boredom or mild fatigue. The benefits that you may gain include an increase in your knowledge about BCI technology and the experience of participating in an online study. The survey will be voluntary, and participants can choose to withdraw from the survey at any time.

You are only allowed to participate once in this survey; please pay attention to the questions and answer honestly.


Data Collection and Processing:

All data will remain anonymous and stored securely on a server. The data will be processed using statistical software, and the collection of background data, such as gender, is solely for analyzing statements diversely. No conclusions about individuals will be drawn from the provided information. Results will be disclosed anonymously in tables or graphics, preventing individual recognition.

Please do not enter any personal information, even from others, in the open text fields. Art. 4 para. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) defines personal data as all information about an identifiable individual. A person is identifiable if they can be identified by a name, ID number, location data, online identifier, physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity.


There are 35 questions in this survey.
This survey is anonymous.

The record of your survey responses does not contain any identifying information about you, unless a specific survey question explicitly asked for it.

If you used an identifying token to access this survey, please rest assured that this token will not be stored together with your responses. It is managed in a separate database and will only be updated to indicate whether you did (or did not) complete this survey. There is no way of matching identification tokens with survey responses.
