Small but fruitful beginnings"
PhD Student Projects
In addition to the above funded efforts, we
have several ongoing and starting PhD student projects on the use of
brain signals for control and communication, including the following:
Mental and visual protocols for
P300 based spellers
Mental tasks for asynchronous BCIs
EEG-based biometrics (individual
EEG signals and movement
imagination: applications and localization studies
BCI control of robot manipulators
Visual and auditory steady state
evoked potentials for BCIs
BCIs for games
Brain control of interactive
BCIs for neurorhabilitation
