In psychiatry, the sleep stage is one of the most important evidence for diagnosing mental disease. However, doctors require much labor and skill for diagnosis, so a quantitative and objective method is required for more accurate diagnosis since it depends on the doctor's experience. For this reason, an automatic diagnosis system must be developed. In this(More)
We propose a simple character identification method demonstrated by using an electroencephalogram (EEG) with a stimulus presentation technique. The method assigns a code maximizing the minimum Hamming distance between character codes. Character identification is achieved by increasing the difference between target and non-target responses without(More)
In this study, we have improved upon the P300 speller Brain-Computer Interface paradigm by introducing a new character encoding method. Our concept in detection of the intended character is not based on a classification of target and nontarget responses, but based on an identifaction of the character which maximize the difference between P300 amplitudes in(More)
In this paper, we propose a method to acquire temporal changes of activations by moving an analysis time window. An advantage of this method is that it can acquire rough changes of activated areas even with the data having low time resolution. We ascertained that activations from our method do not contradict previous reports on the oddball paradigm, thus(More)
