Pseudo-Online Detection of Intention of Pedaling Start Cycle Through EEG Signals

Part of the Biosystems & Biorobotics book series (BIOSYSROB,volume 15)


This work studied different electrode configurations and processing windows for detecting the intention of pedaling initiation. Furthermore, data were pseudo-online analyzed. The main goal was to find alterations in the mu and beta frequency bands where event-related synchronization and desynchronization (ERS/ERD) is produced. The results show an improvement using time before and after the movement onset rather than until the movement onset.

This research has been carried out in the framework of the project Associate—Decoding and stimulation of motor and sensory brain activity to support long term potentiation through Hebbian and paired associative stimulation during rehabilitation of gait (DPI2014-58431-C4-2-R), funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness and by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) A way to build Europe.
