  author={D{\'i}az Pineda and Jaime Alberto},
Dyskinetic Cerebral Palsy (DCP) is mainly characterized by alterations in muscle tone and involuntary movements. Therefore, these people present with difficulties in coordination and movement control, which makes walking difficult and affects their posture when seated. Additionally, their cognitive performance varies between being completely normal and severe mental retardation. People with DCP were selected as the objective of this thesis due to their multiple and complex limitations (speech… Expand


Motor imagery and EEG-based control of spelling devices and neuroprostheses.
The basic methods used in Graz-BCI research are described and possible clinical applications are outlined, which can be used to assist patients who have highly compromised motor functions. Expand
Cerebral palsy and communication
Abstract Cerebral palsy (CP) can cause disturbances in sensory and cognitive development as well as motor disorders. Problems in these areas of functioning can affect children's speech, language andExpand
An auditory brain–computer interface (BCI)
It is concluded that with sufficient training time an auditory BCI may be as efficient as a visual BCI and Mood and motivation play a role in learning to use a BCI. Expand
Visual evoked potential-based brain-machine interface applications to assist disabled people
A brain-computer interface based on electroencephalography (EEG) that has been developed to assist disabled people using the evoked potentials paradigm, which allows severe disabled people to interact with other people using basic commands related to emotions and needs. Expand
A single case study of a family-centred intervention with a young girl with cerebral palsy who is a multimodal communicator.
There was a trend for increased eye gaze in both mum and girl and AAC communication in the girl following the video intervention, and the family's perspective concurs with the results. Expand
The Hybrid BCI
A hybrid BCI that simultaneously combines ERD and SSVEP BCIs is described, in which subjects could use a brain switch to control anSSVEP-based hand orthosis and about half the false positives encountered while using the SSVEp BCI alone are exhibited. Expand
Single Trial Classification of Motor Imagination Using 6 Dry EEG Electrodes
A novel EEG cap based on dry electrodes was developed which does not need time-consuming gel application and uses far fewer electrodes than on a standard EEG cap set-up and could significantly widen the use of EEG for emerging applications requiring long-term brain activity and mental state monitoring.

The environment has been implemented in Apple IIs without hardware modification so that public domain programs and utilities may be accessed in a manner which is not stigmatory to the disabled user. Expand
Stability of the gross motor function classification system.
There was a tendency for children younger than 6 years who were reclassified to be done so to a lower level of ability, and the results provide evidence of stability of the GMFCS. Expand
EEG-based Estimation of Cognitive Fatigue
We measured multichannel EEG spectra during a continuous mental arithmetic task and created statistical learning models of cognitive fatigue for single subjects. Sixteen subjects (4 F, 18-38 y)Expand
