Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) are systems that establish a direct communication pathway between the users' brain activity and external effectors. They offer the potential to improve the quality of life of motor-impaired patients. Motor BCIs aim to permit severely motor-impaired users to regain limb mobility by controlling orthoses or prostheses. In particular, motor BCI systems benefit patients if the decoded actions reflect the users' intentions with an accuracy that enables them to…

Decoding of finger activation from ECoG data: a comparative study

Several conventional classifiers often reported in the BCI literature were coupled with two preprocessing techniques and with a conventional feature extraction approach and compared to artificial neural network (ANN) end-to-end classifiers which mimic conventional BCI signal processing pipelines.

Evaluation criteria for closed-loop adaptive dynamic discrete-continuous brain-computer interfaces: clinical study case with tetraplegic patient.

Evaluation criteria for closed-loop adaptive dynamic and hierarchical discrete-continuous brain-computer interfaces BCI systems are examined and developed criteria are applied to performance evaluation of 8-dimensional exoskeleton control by tetraplegic patient for both decoder and user-centered metrics.

Personalized adaptive instruction design (PAID) for brain–computer interface using reinforcement learning and deep learning: simulated data study

ABSTRACTBrain–computer interface (BCI) systems may require the user to perform a set of mental tasks, such as imagining different types of motion. The performance demonstrated on these tasks varies...



ECoG signal processing for Brain Computer Interface with multiple degrees of freedom for clinical application. (Traitement du signal ECoG pour Interface Cerveau Machine à grand nombre de degrés de liberté pour application clinique)

A switching decoder, namely a Markov Switching Linear Model (MSLM), has been developed to limit spurious system activations, to prevent parallel limb movements and to accurately decode complex movements.

Brain Computer Interfaces, a Review

The state-of-the-art of BCIs are reviewed, looking at the different steps that form a standard BCI: signal acquisition, preprocessing or signal enhancement, feature extraction, classification and the control interface.

Advantages of closed-loop calibration in intracortical brain-computer interfaces for people with tetraplegia.

This work tested whether CL calibration creates a better decoder than OL calibration even when all other factors that might influence performance are held constant, including the amount of data used for calibration and the time between calibration and testing.

Brain–computer interfacing based on cognitive control

This work investigated whether the cognitive control network can be used for BCI purposes and determined the feasibility of using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for noninvasive localization of the Cognitive control network.

Brain–computer interfaces for communication and control

Improving brain-machine interface performance by decoding intended future movements.

This study is the first to characterize the effects of control delays in a BMI and to show that decoding the user's future intent can compensate for the negative effect of control delay on BMI performance.

Decoding flexion of individual fingers using electrocorticographic signals in humans

It is shown that it is also possible to decode the time course of the flexion of individual fingers using ECoG signals in humans, and by showing that these flexion time courses are highly specific to the moving finger.

Sensors and decoding for intracortical brain computer interfaces.

How these innovations increase the technology's capability, accuracy, and longevity are discussed, all important steps that are expanding the range of possible future clinical applications.
