The classification of ankle movements from non-invasive brain recordings can be applied to a brain-computer interface (BCI) to control exoskeletons, prosthesis, and functional electrical stimulators for the benefit of patients with walking impairments. In this research, ankle flexion and extension tasks at two force levels in both legs, were classified from cortical current sources estimated by a hierarchical variational Bayesian method, using electroencephalography (EEG) and functional…

Analysis of Human Gait Using Hybrid EEG-fNIRS-Based BCI System: A Review
HBCI (EEG + fNIRS) system is not yet much explored for the lower limb due to its complexity compared to the higher limb, and there is a long way to go in adopting hBCI in gait analysis.
Recognition of EEG Signal Motor Imagery Intention Based on Deep Multi-View Feature Learning
A new deep multi-view feature learning method is proposed for the classification task of motor imagery electroencephalogram (EEG) signals and applied to the BCI competition IV 2a dataset, showing improved classification accuracy.
MEG Source Imaging and Group Analysis Using VBMEG
The VBMEG toolbox is introduced and its characteristics are highlighted by comparing these results with those obtained by other source imaging methods: weighted minimum norm estimate (wMNE), dynamic statistical parametric mapping (dSPM), and linearly constrained minimum variance (LCMV) beamformer.
Generation of diverse insect-like gait patterns using networks of coupled Rössler systems.
This work demonstrates the possibility of synthesizing viable gaits using a paradigmatic low-dimensional non-linear entity, namely, the Rössler system, as a dynamical unit, and demonstrates the functionality of the resulting generator by means of an instrumented six-legged ant-like robot.

Hand Movement Direction Decoded from MEG and EEG
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.
Decoding of Covert Vowel Articulation Using Electroencephalography Cortical Currents
The proposed electroencephalography (EEG) cortical currents as a new approach for EEG-based brain-computer interface spellers demonstrate the potential utility of EEG cortical currents not only for engineering purposes such as brain- computer interfaces but also for neuroscientific purposes such the identification of neural signaling related to language processing.
Extracting Kinematic Parameters for Monkey Bipedal Walking from Cortical Neuronal Ensemble Activity
It is demonstrated that chronic recordings from ensembles of cortical neurons can be used to predict the kinematics of bipedal walking in rhesus macaques – both offline and in real time.
