WORKSHOP: "Brain Computer interfaces", University of Reading

http://www.bcihci.reading.ac.uk/workshop.php
Contact: Anthony Portelli, a.j.portelli@pgr.reading.ac.uk

The University of Reading will be hosting a BCI workshop in conjunction with g.tec on Friday 15th April.

 

http://www.bcihci.reading.ac.uk/workshop.php

 

The aim is to demonstrate and showcase what is achievable with BCI, deliver basic training on the setup 
and how to train and apply a classifier to various commonly targeted potentials. It will be hands on and
interactive with a number of core members of the g.tec team and several sets of equipment which should be 
able to accommodate a maximum of 30 people.

Attendees will learn about...

         Invasive recordings with ECoG 

         Assets and drawbacks of EEG-based BCI 

         BCI approaches: the slow cortical potentials 

         BCI approaches: oscillatory activity, alpha-, mu- and beta rhythms 

         BCI approaches: steady-state evoked potentials 

         BCI approaches: the P-300 approach 

         Limits of speed and accuracy with EEG-based BCI applications 

         Introduction to required hard- and software 

         Practical introduction: electrode montage, EEG recording 

         Live BCI-experiment with volunteer subject(s)
