Recent research has reached a consensus on the feasibility of motor imagery brain-computer interface (MI-BCI) for different applications, especially in stroke rehabilitation. Most MI-BCI systems rely on temporal, spectral, and spatial features of single channels to distinguish different MI patterns. However, no successful communication has been established(More)
Problem statement: Facial expression recognition has been improved recently and it has become a significant issue in diagnostic and medical fields, particularly in the areas of assistive technology and rehabilitation. Apart from their usefulness, there are some problems in their applications like peripheral conditions, lightening, contrast and quality of(More)
The authors present a new method of recognizing different human facial gestures through their neural activities and muscle movements, which can be used in machine-interfacing applications. Human-machine interface (HMI) technology utilizes human neural activities as input controllers for the machine. Recently, much work has been done on the specific(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, the recognition of different facial gestures using facial neuromuscular activities has been proposed for human machine interfacing applications. Facial electromyograms (EMGs) analysis is a complicated field in biomedical signal processing where accuracy and low computational cost are significant concerns. In this paper, a very fast(More)
Facial gesture recognition has become an important issue in diagnostic, medical and industrial fields. Automatic recognition of facial gestures could be considered as an important factor in human-machine interface applications. Facial gesture recognition based on surface electromyography (SEMG) has been well thought-out in the recent decade. SEMG has(More)
This paper considers identifying effective cortical connectivity from scalp EEG. Recent studies use time-varying multivariate autoregressive (TV-MAR) models to better describe the changing connectivity between cortical regions where the TV coefficients are estimated by Kalman filter (KF) within a state-space framework. We extend this approach by(More)
Inter-channel time-varying (TV) relationships of scalp neural recordings offer deep understanding of the brain sensory and cognitive functions. This paper develops a state space-based TV multivariate autoregressive (MVAR) model for estimating TV-information flow (IF) recruited by different motor imagery (MI) movements. TV model coefficients are computed(More)
