Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

In this paper, we present the results of single trial EEG classification of observed wrist movements. This study is part of our endeavour to develop brain computer interfaces as an assistive device for people with severe motor disabilities. Our methods rely on a simple but robust algorithm that requires no subject training to modulate brain activity. We adopt a method based on extraction and selection of statistically significant time-frequency features using ANOVA and principal component analysis. Classification results achieved ~80% (±12%.
