EEG Signal Classification for Brain-Computer Interface Applications
Recent advancements in computer hardware and signal processing have paved a way to unlock the ability for patients who are unable to physically interact with those outside themselves. Computer hardware and signal processing have made it apparent easy to use the EEG signals or “brain waves” for communication between humans and computers. Because of its high temporal resolution, low cost, and invasiveness, the neuroimaging technique, electroencephalography (EEG), is a practical tool for implementing BCI systems. Since they are high temporal resolution, cost-effective and invasive, the neuroimaging techniques, EEG tool is a reliable tool for implementing BCI systems

The tool provides communication and control for paralyzed people, stimulating them to spell, interact and control connected devices. Generally, the BCI system relies on real-time processing of EEG signals recorded when the users practice the tasks like the movement of hand and foot movement that induces ERD/ERS in the specific band of EEG.
How the EEG system works
The advanced BCIs use an EEG system that recorde EEG activities from the scalp to monitor the cursor’s movement – like selecting letters or icons or operating neuroprosthesis. The central unit of BCIs works as a translation algorithm that converts the electrophysiological input of the user into output that controls external devices. The interaction between the two adaptive controllers are greatly impacted by the operation of BCI, meaning the user who encodes their commands in the electrophysiological input provided to the BCI, and then a computer recognizes the command contained in the input and conveys them in the device control.
The results of this project explore the effectiveness of Time-Frequency Analysis as well as they are also able to classify mental tasks with different levels of difficulty, and can help diagnose conditions such as ADHD. It’s been shown the technique has a lot in common with other signal processing techniques used for classification problems like SVM or KNN so it should be useful outside its current application area as well!
Furthermore, the EEG signals from several subjects were studied during 6 channels while performing five different types of brain activities, including resting and solving simple arithmetic, geometric figure rotation, mental letter composition, and counting.
Previously the uses of the system were just limited to few things but it has stretched its arm while also enriching the following arena with its benefits
- Brain (neural) signal acquisition: advancement of both invasive and non-invasive techniques for quality signal acquisition.
- Algorithms and processing: advanced machine learning and signal processing algorithms, which take advantage of fast computing power to enable online real-time processing.
- Underlying neuroscience: a better understanding of the neural code, the functional neuroanatomy, the physiology, and how these are related to perception and cognition, allowing signals to be interpreted in the context of neurobiology.
Due to these new technological breakthroughs that allow them an opportunity at communicating again by tapping on and using only brain waves as input.
