Do you think it is possible to control devices just by thoughts? Brain-computer interfaces (BCI) enable communication between a machine and the user via brain-waves. A promising field of BCI application is the development of tools for disabled people, which for example help their communication, movement etc. During this project we are going to examine EEG recordings of several healthy and disabled subjects, furthermore develop algorithms to identify for example whether the subject was thinking on a television or a door. In order to carry out the project you will learn about EEG-recordings, experimental setups, machine learning algorithms and the R programming language.
Project prerequisites: basic programming skills recommended (any language)
Associated topics: Cognitive Science, Computational Neuroscience, Computer Science
