Motor imagery and direct brain-computer communication
Motor imagery can modify the neuronal activity in the primary sensorimotor areas in a very similar way as observable with a real executed movement. One part of EEG-based brain-computer interfacesExpand

Event-related dynamics of cortical rhythms: frequency-specific features and functional correlates.
Oscillations in the alpha and beta band (<35 Hz) display a dynamic behavior and show characteristic spatiotemporal patterns in sensory, motor and cognitive tasks. The event-related desynchronizationExpand

The BCI competition 2003: progress and perspectives in detection and discrimination of EEG single trials
Interest in developing a new method of man-to-machine communication-a brain-computer interface (BCI)-has grown steadily over the past few decades. BCIs create a new communication channel between theExpand

Post-movement beta synchronization. A correlate of an idling motor area?
Post-movement beta (around 20 Hz) synchronization was investigated in 2 experiments with self-paced finger extension and flexion and externally paced wrist movement. The electrodes were fixed overExpand

Event-related synchronization (ERS) in the alpha band--an electrophysiological correlate of cortical idling: a review.
EEG desynchronization is a reliable correlate of excited neural structures of activated cortical areas. EEG synchronization within the alpha band may be an electrophysiological correlate ofExpand

Motor imagery activates primary sensorimotor area in humans
The spatiotemporal patterns of Rolandic mu and beta rhythms were studied during motor imagery with a dense array of EEG electrodes. The subjects were instructed to imagine movements of either theExpand

EEG-based discrimination between imagination of right and left hand movement.
Three subjects were asked to imagine either right or left hand movement depending on a visual cue stimulus. The interval between two consecutive imagination tasks was > 10 s. Each subject imagined aExpand

The Hybrid BCI
Nowadays, everybody knows what a hybrid car is. A hybrid car normally has two engines to enhance energy efficiency and reduce CO2 output. Similarly, a hybrid brain-computer interface (BCI) isExpand

The creative brain: Investigation of brain activity during creative problem solving by means of EEG and FMRI
Cortical activity in the EEG alpha band has proven to be particularly sensitive to creativity‐related demands, but its functional meaning in the context of creative cognition has not been clarifiedExpand

Imagery of motor actions: differential effects of kinesthetic and visual-motor mode of imagery in single-trial EEG.
Single-trial motor imagery classification is an integral part of a number of brain-computer interface (BCI) systems. The possible significance of the kind of imagery, involving rather kinesthetic orExpand
