The use of evolutionary algorithm-based methods in EEG based BCI systems
Atyabi A., Luerssen M., Fitzgibbon SP., Powers DMW.
Electroencephalogram (EEG) based Brain Computer Interface (BCI) is a system that uses human brain-waves recorded from the scalp as a means for providing a new communication channel by which people with limited physical communication capability can effect control over devices such as moving a mouse and typing characters. Evolutionary approaches have the potential to improve the performance of such system through providing a better sub-set of electrodes or features, reducing the required training time of the classifiers, reducing the noise to signal ratio, and so on. This chapter provides a survey on some of the commonly used EA methods in EEG study. © 2013, IGI Global.
