  1. 1. HOW DOES A BCI WORK?Monday, March 19, 2012
  2. 2. MOTOR IMAGERY Sensorimotor rhythms (SMR) Detected in the sensorimotor area Somatosensory cortex Motor cortex Mu rhythms: 8-12 Hz Beta rhythms: 12-30Hz ECoG can also use gamma rhythms (30-80Hz)Monday, March 19, 2012
  3. 3. MOTOR IMAGERY ERD (Event Related Desynchronization) Planning and execution of hand/finger movements block (desynchronize) mu rhythms ERS (Event Related Synchronization) Inhibition of movements synchronizes mu rhythms Foot and tongue movements enhance mu rhythms ERD/ERS is generally observed for the contralateral movementsMonday, March 19, 2012
  4. 4. MOTOR IMAGERY Does not need external stimuli Does need long training Users learn the best imagery Closed-loop feedback plays an important role in learningMonday, March 19, 2012
  5. 5. SIGNAL PROCESSING - Simplifies signals: e.g. filtering Preprocessing - Improves the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) - Extract features relevant to control parameters using Feature mathematical methods Extraction - e.g. Amplitudes, Frequencies, Firing rates, ... - Detection: detects specific patterns from ordinary Detection/ patterns Classification - Classification: classifies a given pattern to one of many variablesMonday, March 19, 2012
  6. 6. SIGNAL PROCESSING Synchronous BCIs Cue-paced Operates a BCI with a fixed time frame Asynchronous BCIs Self-paced Operates a BCI whenever the user wantsMonday, March 19, 2012

  8. 8. PERFORMANCE MEASURES Classification Rate (= 1 - Error Rate) # correct / total attempts Letters / minute for a speller Information transfer rate (ITR) Depends on classification accuracy, performance time, and # classes Bits / minute Ball park: 30 bits/min ~ 90 bits/min (?)Monday, March 19, 2012

  16. 16. CONTROL LEVEL Low-level High-level Process-oriented Goal-oriented control control e.g. move a cursor to a e.g. move a cursor in target #4 45 degree with a speed of 2cm/s at this All the details are time instant (for 50ms) managed by an actuator More specific More generalMonday, March 19, 2012
  17. 17. It is system based on a conventional wheelchair equipped with a stereo camera sys- tem, a robot arm with 7 degrees-of-freedom, a gripper with force/torque sensor, a smart tray with tactile surface and weight sensors, and a computing unit consist- ing of three independent industrial PCs.
