The phrase brain-computer interface (BCI) when taken literally means tointerface an individual’s electrophysiological signals with a computer. Atrue BCI only uses signals from the brain and as such must treat eye andmuscle movements as artifacts or noise. On the other hand, a system thatuses eye, muscle, or other body potentials mixed with EEG signals, is abrain-body actuated system.
Figure 2 : Scheme of an EEG-based Brain Computer Interface with on-linefeedback. The EEG is recorded from the head surface, signal processingtechniques are used to extract features. These features are classified, the output is displayed on a computer screen. This feedback should help the subject tocontrol its EEG patterns.
The BCI system uses oscillatory electroencephalogram (EEG)signals, recorded during specific mental activity, as input and provides a
