Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) based on Steady State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP) can provide higher throughput than other BCI modalities. For the sake of safety and comfort, the frequencies of the stimulus should be higher than 30 Hz. However, only a limited number of these frequencies can elicit SSVEPs that are strong enough for BCI purposes. In order to increase the number of available stimuli, the SSVEP phase can be taken into account. In this study, we used phase synchrony analysis to… Expand
Online BCI Implementation of High-Frequency Phase Modulated Visual Stimuli
TLDR
This work developed an online BCI implementation which was tested on six subjects and resulted on an average accuracy of 95.5% and an average bit rate of 34 bits-per-minute, and has the advantage of entailing only minimal visual annoyance for the user. Expand
An Analysis on the Effect of Phase on the Performance of SSVEP-Based BCIs
TLDR
An investigation on how the inclusion of phase information in the form of a novel proposed feature, the phase-weighted SNR (PWS) feature, can improve the performance of BCI systems is presented. Expand
Complex-Valued Spatial Filters for SSVEP-Based BCIs With Phase Coding
TLDR
This paper proposes the use of the analytic common spatial patterns (ACSPs) method to discriminate between phase coded SSVEP targets, and demonstrates that the complex-valued spatial filters used for discrimination can exceed the performance of existing techniques. Expand
Stimulation Effects in SSVEP-Based BCIs
TLDR
The results suggest that high contrast stimulation works the best, while also being the least comfortable, and maximum black/white contrast is often not needed and other stimuli are shown to work almost as well, while being far more comfortable. Expand
Multi-phase cycle coding for SSVEP based brain-computer interfaces
TLDR
The MPCC has the error correction ability, can effectively increase the encoded targets and improve the performance of the system, therefore, the MPCC is promising for practical BCIs. Expand
Multichannel Spatial Filters for Enhancing SSVEP Detection
TLDR
During the research four spatial filtering procedures were compared under 15 slightly different SSVEP-BCI setups and the main finding was that none of the procedures showed clear predominance in all 15 setups. Expand
SSVEP phase synchronies and propagation during repetitive visual stimulation at high frequencies
TLDR
The SSVEP spatial properties appear sensitive to input frequency with higher stimulation frequencies showing a faster propagation speed, while the origin and propagation of SSVEPs in the gamma frequency band (40–60 Hz) are investigated by studying the dynamic properties of EEG in 32 subjects. Expand
SSVEP at Single and Beating Frequencies Utilizing Perceptual Insights
TLDR
It is shown for multiple frequencies that eliciting an SSVEP response with stimuli below the perception threshold is possible and waves combining two higher frequencies and using the non-linearity of the human visual system to generate a sub-harmonic beating frequency are tried. Expand
Review: Recent Development of Signal Processing Algorithms for SSVEP-based Brain Computer Interfaces
TLDR
Algorithms that can be applied to nonlinear and non-stationary signal processing are increasingly employed rather than traditional Fourier-based transforms because they are more suitable for the characteristics of SSVEPs. Expand
A Study on the Effect of the Inter-Sources Distance on the Performance of the SSVEP-Based BCI Systems
TLDR
It is showed that the BCI system with D=44 cm, AR order of 13 and either the LDA or the SVM classifiers could produce the best results compared to the other cases. Expand
