Survey of Brain Computer Interaction

A brain computer interface (BCI), often called a mind machine interface (MMI), or sometimes called a brain machine interface (BMI), is a direct communication pathway between the brain and an external

Practical Designs of Brain–Computer Interfaces Based on the Modulation of EEG Rhythms

TLDR
Electroencephalogram (EEG) is the main interest due to its advantages of low cost, convenient operation and non-invasiveness, and these systems offer some practical solutions for patients with motor disabilities.

EEG-Based Brain-Computer Interface System

TLDR
The current approaches and methods used in BCI research are outlined, with emphasis on the signal processing part of the system, consisting of preprocessing, feature extraction, and classification.

Practical brain computer interfacing

TLDR
This dissertation demonstrates that BCIs can provide effective communication for most subjects and showed that improvements in the BCI transducer, training protocols, and feedback methods constituted the basis to achieve faster and more reliable BCI communication.

Brain Computer Interface

TLDR
This chapter introduces the current state of the art of brain—computer interface (BCI) technology based on noninvasive surface electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings, to enable lost body or communication functions in handicapped persons.

Current Trends in Brain–Computer Interface (BCI) Research and Development

TLDR
As the field has begun to mature, its scope has expanded to focus on application of BCI technology to the needs of people with disabilities—recent efforts are now aimed at providing people, including those who cannot use their muscles but are cognitively intact, with alternative methods for interacting with the outside world.

A natural basis for efficient brain-actuated control.

TLDR
It is demonstrated using data from a visual selective attention task that ICA-derived mu-components can show much stronger spectral reactivity to motor events than activity measures for single scalp channels, and would appear to form a natural basis for operant conditioning to achieve efficient and multidimensional brain-actuated control in motor-limited and locked-in subjects.

BCI2000: a general-purpose brain-computer interface (BCI) system

TLDR
This report is intended to describe to investigators, biomedical engineers, and computer scientists the concepts that the BCI2000 system is based upon and gives examples of successful BCI implementations using this system.

The Wadsworth Center brain-computer interface (BCI) research and development program

TLDR
To facilitate the evaluation, comparison, and combination of alternative BCI methods, the Wadsworth Center has developed a general-purpose BCI system called BCI-2000 and has made it available to other research groups.

Motor imagery and direct brain-computer communication

TLDR
At this time, a tetraplegic patient is able to operate an EEG-based control of a hand orthosis with nearly 100% classification accuracy by mental imagination of specific motor commands.

Connecting cortex to machines: recent advances in brain interfaces

TLDR
Progress in creating useful human BMIs is accelerating, and studies in behaving monkeys show that neural output from the motor cortex can be used to control computer cursors almost as effectively as a natural hand would carry out the task.

EEG-based brain computer interface (BCI). Search for optimal electrode positions and frequency components.

TLDR
An initial evaluation of 64-channel EEG data recorded while subjects used one EEG channel over the left sensorimotor area to control on-line vertical cursor movement found that for each subject there exist optimal electrode positions and frequency components for on- line EEG-based cursor control.
