A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a system that allows its users to control external devices with brain activity. Although the proof-of-concept was given decades ago, the reliable translation of user intent into device control commands is still a major challenge. Success requires the effective interaction of two adaptive controllers: the user's brain, which produces brain activity that encodes intent, and the BCI system, which translates that activity into device control commands. In order to… Expand
The non-invasive Berlin Brain–Computer Interface: Fast acquisition of effective performance in untrained subjects
TLDR
It is proposed that the key to quick efficiency in the BBCI system is its flexibility due to complex but physiologically meaningful features and its adaptivity which respects the enormous inter-subject variability. Expand

Adaptive online brain-computer interface for interpretation and visualization of desired reach
TLDR
An adaptive online brain-computer interface based on natural reaching motor imagery with feedback of realistic animations of the intended reaching task is presented, which improves the user experience by eliminating training sessions, providing a very natural and straightforward mapping between user task and system feedback, and by using an adaptive classifier which can adjust to changes in brain signal over the time.
