Developing a Brain-Computer Interface Based on Visual Imagery

A brain-computer interface (BCI) is a technology to provide direct communication between the brain and an external device. In this project, we have utilized noninvasive electroencephalography (EEG) to record and decode neural activity during the observation and mental imagery of visual stimuli. Our platform has demonstrated successful discrimination between face and scene image categories during […]
