Magnetoencephalography (MEG) enables a noninvasive interface with the brain that is potentially capable of providing movement-related information similar to that obtained using more invasive neural recording techniques. Previous studies have shown that movement direction can be decoded from multichannel MEG signals recorded in humans performing wrist movements. We studied whether this information can be extracted without overt movement of the subject, because the targeted users of brain…

EEG source analysis during circular rhythmic human arm movements
TLDR
There is still a long way to go to find the analogous of the population vector, a vector that points in the direction of the arm movement, and it is hoped this thesis was a first step towards it.
A High Performance MEG Based BCI Using Single Trial Detection of Human Movement Intention
TLDR
If the spatial resolution of the signal is high enough, discrimination of different movement intentions from the spatiotemporal distribution of oscillatory brain activity should be possible on a single trial basis and could be harnessed as a flexible control signal for external devices in the design of brain computer interfaces (BCI).
Distance- and speed-informed kinematics decoding improves M/EEG based upper-limb movement decoder accuracy
TLDR
Direct evidence is presented that directional and nondirectional kinematic information is simultaneously detectable in low-frequency M/EEG signals and significantly improves the decoding accuracy upon a linear KF.
Decoding onset and direction of movements using Electrocorticographic (ECoG) signals in humans
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the onset of intended movements and their direction can be detected using electrocorticographic signals recorded from the surface of the cortex in humans, and that the information encoded in ECoG about these movements may improve performance in a targeting task.
Spatio-temporal variations in hand movement trajectory based brain activation patterns
TLDR
This study uses Multiple Linear Regressor to estimate the hand movement trajectory from spectrally localized multi-sensor EEG and investigates spatio-temporal variations in motor activity based neural activation patterns using metrics derived from MLR estimator.
Efficient MEG signal decoding of direction in wrist movement using curve fitting (EMDC)
TLDR
A reliable and efficient algorithm for classification of wrist movement in four directions from MEG signals of two subjects is proposed, which is found to be superior to most other techniques in vogue.
Upper limb movements can be decoded from the time-domain of low-frequency EEG
TLDR
The encoding of single upper limb movements in the time-domain of low-frequency electroencephalography signals is analyzed and classifier patterns indicate that mainly premotor areas, primary motor cortex, somatosensory cortex and posterior parietal cortex convey discriminative movement information.
ECoG-Based BCI for BCI-MEG Research
TLDR
This experiment showed that ECoG-based motor imagery performed well despite a short training period, providing future possibility for MEG-based BCI with higher sensitivity than present MEG sensors.

Hand Movement Direction Decoded from MEG and EEG
TLDR
The results show that neuronal activity associated with different movements of the same effector can be distinguished by means of nonin invasive recordings and might, thus, be used to drive a noninvasive BMI.
Differential representation of arm movement direction in relation to cortical anatomy and function.
TLDR
A topographic analysis of the information related to arm movement direction that can be extracted from single trials of electrocorticographic signals recorded from the human frontal and parietal cortex shows that activity from the primary motor cortex carries most directional information.
Decoding two-dimensional movement trajectories using electrocorticographic signals in humans.
TLDR
It is shown in humans that kinematic parameters can also be decoded from signals recorded by subdural electrodes on the cortical surface (ECoG) with an accuracy comparable to that achieved in monkey studies using intracortical microelectrodes.

TLDR
A role for slow coherent oscillations in mediating neural representations of hand kinematics in humans is suggested and support for the putative role of long-range neural synchronization in large-scale VM integration is provided.
Human motor cortical activity recorded with Micro-ECoG electrodes, during individual finger movements
TLDR
The results suggest that the micro-ECoG grid presented here offers sufficient spatial and temporal resolution for the development of minimally-invasive brain-computer interface applications.

Magnetoencephalographic signals predict movement trajectory in space
TLDR
An excellent prediction of movement trajectory by real-time magnetoencephalography (MEG) is demonstrated and this congruence was robust since it remained high in cross-validation analyses.

TLDR
The main advantage of the proposed method is that it provides an efficient approach for simultaneous estimation of multiple sources of oscillatory activity in the same frequency band.
