We know what your thinking…

The potential for recognising what the brain is thinking before a person moves has enormous applications in many fields of endeavour. One such area is that of biofeedback for the learning of new skills. Come and hear PhD candidate speak about his work in this area and moving it into the portable realm

Abstract:

This project involves the investigation of the relationship between EEG brain sites and cognitive processes which is important in biofeedback applications. A pilot study was initiated to determine the correlations between the CZ and FZ electrodes using a testing regime known as the oddball test. Data was collected from 12 participants, inspected and cleared as a pre-EEG analysis step. The Wavelet transform (Morlet) was used to convert the evoked potential signals to the time-frequency plane in order to highlight the signal components. Wavelet coherence was applied between two EEG recording sites to examine the similarity and synchronicity between these sites in the specified EEG bands. It was found that there were correlations in the gamma band for these sites. This work leads into creating a system for bio-feedback using an FPGA as the analysis engine.
