Predicting student emotions resulting from appraisal of its feedback

Paul Salvador Invented. The Institute of Scientific and Industrial Research, Osaka University, Japan   Abstract Many researchers have shown the effectiveness of affective ITS for supporting student learning. Support provided to students is usually presented through pedagogical agents capable of expressing emotions through facial expressions, gestures and synthesized speech. Dialogue content is important as it contains information that will help […]

IpsiHand: Direct Re-coupling of Intention and Movement

Sam Fok, Raphael Schwartz, Mark Wronkiewicz, Charles Holmes, Jessica Zhang, Nathan Brodell, Thane Somers. Washington University in St. Louis, USA   Abstract Stroke and traumatic brain injury (TBI) cause long-term, unilateral loss of motor control due to brain damage on the opposing (contralateral) side of the body. Conventional neurological therapies have been found ineffective in rehabilitating […]

Smartphones Get Emotional: Mind Reading Images and Reconstructing the Neural Sources

Michael Kai Petersen, Carsten Stahlhut, Arkadiusz Stopczynski, Jakob Eg Larsen, and Lars Kai Hansen. DTU Informatics, Cognitive Systems. Technical University of Denmark, Building 321, DK-2800 Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark Abstract Combining a wireless EEG headset with a smartphone offers new opportunities to capture brain imaging data reflecting our everyday social behavior in a mobile context. However processing the data on a portable […]

A smartphone interface for a wireless EEG headset with real-time 3D reconstruction

Arkadiusz Stopczynski, Jakob Eg Larsen, Carsten Stahlhut, Michael Kai Petersen, and Lars Kai Hansen. DTU Informatics, Cognitive Systems, Technical University of Denmark, Building 321, DK-2800 Kgs. Lyngby, Denmark   Abstract We demonstrate a fully functional handheld brain scanner consisting of a low-cost 14-channel EEG headset with a wireless connection to a smartphone, enabling minimally invasive EEG monitoring in naturalistic settings. […]

Wired: Mind control: How a £200 neuro-headset is redefining brain-computing interaction

  The piles of monitors in the front room at the offices of Emotiv Systems in downtown San Francisco resemble an electronics shop that’s holding a going-out-of-business sale. A back room, which contains workstations, is more organised, but not exactly a hive of activity: even in the middle of the day, there are only a […]

Mind control: How a £200 headset is redefining brain-computing interaction

Tan Le wearing Epoc headset

Tan Le dreamed of operating machines using only thought. Now her £200 Epoc headset is redefining brain-computing interaction The piles of monitors in the front room at the offices of Emotiv Systems in downtown San Francisco resemble an electronics shop that’s holding a going-out-of-business sale. A back room, which contains workstations, is more organised, but […]

Automatic detection of EEG artefacts arising from head movements using gyroscopes

S. O’Regan. Dept. of Electr. Eng., Univ. Coll. Cork, Cork, Ireland   Abstract The need for reliable detection of head movement artefacts in an ambulatory EEG system has been demonstrated in previous work. In this paper we propose the use of gyroscopes in detecting artefacts in EEG. A collection of features are extracted from the gyroscope […]

P-300 Rhythm Detection Using ANFIS Algorithm and Wavelet Feature Extraction in EEG Signals

Juan Manuel Ramírez-Cortes, Vicente Alarcon-Aquino, Gerardo Rosas-Cholula, Pilar Gomez-Gil, Jorge Escamilla-Ambrosio. World Congress on Engineering and Computer Science   Abstract P300 evoked potential is an electroencephalographic (EEG) signal obtained at the central-parietal region of the brain in response to rare or unexpected events. In this work, an experiment on the detection of a P-300 rhythm for potential applications on brain […]

Inc. : Videogames Powered By Your Brain

By Christina Desmarais, Inc. Magazine At the most recent TED Global Conference a guy named Evan Grant made an orange cube disappear inside a virtual world by merely thinking it away. The audience went wild over the former TED speaker’s feat. What made the demo so mind-blowing was that while performing this seemingly magic trick, […]

Using Brain-Computer Interfaces to detect human satisfaction in human-robot interaction

Ehsan Turkish Esfahan. Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California Riverside, USA Abstract This article discusses the use of a brain–computer interface (BCI) to obtain emotional feedback from a human in response to the motion of humanoid robots in collaborative environments. The purpose of this study is to detect the human satisfaction level and use it […]

Toward Natural Selection in Virtual Reality

A. Sherstyuk ; D. Vincent ; A. Treskunov. IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications  (Volume:30 ,  Issue: 2 )   Abstract Here we describe a vision of VR games that combine the best features of gaming and VR: large, persistent worlds experienced in photorealistic settings with full immersion. For example, Figure 1 illustrates a hypothetical immersive VR […]

Achieving Remote Presence using a Humanoid Robot Controlled by a NonInvasive BCI Device

A. Thobbi, R. Kadam, W. Sheng. Laboratory for Advanced Sensing, Computation and Control, Oklahoma State University, USA Abstract This paper presents a platform for „Remote Presence‟ which enables a person to be present at a remote location through the embodiment of a humanoid robot. We specifically propose the use of a humanoid robot since it will endow human like […]

NeuroPhone: Brain-Mobile Phone Interface using a Wireless EEG Headset

Matthew K. Mukerjee. Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, USA Abstract Neural signals are everywhere just like mobile phones. We propose to use neural signals to control mobile phones for hands-free, silent and effortless human-mobile interaction. Until recently, devices for detecting neural signals have been costly, bulky and fragile. We present the design, implementation and evaluation of the […]

Analysis of a commercial EEG device for the control of a robot arm

G. N. Ranky ; Biomed. Eng. Dept., New Jersey Inst. of Technol., Newark, NJ, USA Abstract A BMI using Electroencephalography (EEG) input, known as the Emotiv EPOC was tested with an external robotic arm to determine if it was suitable for control of peripherals. Within 2 weeks of training, subjects maintained or improved axial control […]

IDEO: Epoc Headset for Emotiv

A helmet that harnesses the power of mind-reading San Francisco-based Emotiv Systems merges neuro-engineering, technology, and venture capitalism to create a new human interface control system—the Emotiv EPOC™ headset. The Emotiv EPOC detects and processes real-time brain wave patterns using an EEG device that measures electrical activity in the brain. Through the use of non-invasive […]
