CEREBRE is an acronym that stands for Cognitive Event-Related Biometric Recognition. It represents a protocol for identifying a person’s ‘brainprint.’ This new biometric may replace fingerprinting, passwords, and other types of specific-site access recognition, at least for some types of identification (e.g., used by security systems to verify a person’s identity). Researchers at Binghamton University reported that, using Cerebre, they were able to identify each volunteer’s ‘brainprint’ with 100 percent accuracy. They were able to achieve this by analyzing event-related potential (ERP) brain signals recorded from each subject.
