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

  • BCI mouse

  • Mental tasks for asynchronous BCIs

  • EEG-based biometrics (individual identification)

  • 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 environments

  • BCIs for neurorhabilitation
