This projects conveys experimental competences of Brain-Computer Interfacing (BCI) exemplary. Moreover, theoretical skills in signal processing and machine learning are trained practically in hands-on experiments with self acquired data. A typical project is as follows: work out an experimental design for a given hypothesis; implement the experiment and conduct a study (including the acquisition of physiological data) with about 6 participants; investigate the acquire data with standard analysis methods and techniques from machine learning; put the results into perspective given the state-of-the-art and present them as a talk in a written report. Projects are performed in groups of 2 to 4 students.

Note: This project is about the practical aspects of Brain-Computer Interfaces. The background about this field of research is given in the lecture "Brain-Computer Interfacing".

Voraussetzungen und Anforderungen

Programming skills (Matlab/Octave) and basic knowledge in signal processing and machine learning is required. Having participated in the lecture Brain-Computer Interfacing before is helpful but not required.

Active participation in the project and presentation of the results in a talk and in a report are required.


Material will be provided on the web page of the course (see above).
