OBJECTIVE Relying on the idea that functional connectivity provides important insights on the underlying dynamic of neuronal interactions, we propose a novel framework that combines functional connectivity estimators and covariance-based pipelines to improve the classification of mental states, such as motor imagery. METHODS A Riemannian classifier is trained for each estimator and an ensemble classifier combines the decisions in each feature space. A thorough assessment of the functional…

Single-trial connectivity estimation for classification of motor imagery data
It is shown that single-trial MI classification is possible with connectivity measures extracted from VAR models, and that a BCI could potentially utilize such measures.

Improving J-Divergence of Brain Connectivity States by Graph Laplacian Denoising
Experimental results on real MI-BCI EEG data demonstrate that the Laplacian denoising improves the separation of motor imagery and resting mental states, and shortens the time interval required for connectivity estimation.
Minimizing Subject-dependent Calibration for BCI with Riemannian Transfer Learning
This paper presents a simple and effective scheme to train a classifier on data recorded from different subjects, to reduce the calibration while preserving good performances and points out some key features to further improve transfer learning methods.
