In the study by Sample et al. (2022), most rehabilitation professionals reported that they had little or no prior knowledge of brain-computer interfaces. For this reason, the specific wording used to introduce brain-computer interfaces, as well as the wording of subsequent question about ethics and society, are important for the interpretation of Sample's results. The authors therefore have provided several important components of the survey as source material. This data details the wording for 26 potential ethical issues, about which respondents reported their level of concern (“not concerning” to “extremely concerning”). Find the other data linked here and further details about the data and study in the associated data availability statement.
This excerpt from the survey instrument is part of the source data for the article "Brain-Computer Interfaces, Inclusive Innovation, and the Promise of Restoration: A Mixed-Methods Study with Rehabilitation Professionals" by Matthew Sample et al. published in the journal Engaging Science, Technology, and Society.
