Abstract

We introduce a game, called “The Maze”, as a brain-computer interface (BCI) application in which an avatar is navigated through a maze by analyzing the player’s steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) responses recorded with electroencephalography (EEG). The same computer screen is used for displaying the game environment and for the visual stimulation. The algorithms for EEG data processing and SSVEP detection are discussed in depth. We propose the system parameter values, which provide an acceptable trade-off between the game control accuracy and interactivity.
