Recently, Biomedical Engineering showed advances in using brain potentials for control of physical devices, and robots in particular. [] Key Method An oscillatory expectation process generated in the CNV Flip-Flop Paradigm is used to trigger a sequence of robot behaviors. Experimental illustration is given in which two robotic arms cooperatively solve the well known problem of Towers of Hanoi.
