Asalam o alijum

hope u will b fine

sir now its been 1.5 years i contacted u

my project was finished last year n Alhumdulillah it stood first at inter universities project exibition now our research paper is under publication

hi sir
we are three group members, currently working on brain computer interface. Our project is "Wheel Chair control using Brain computer interface".

Basic concept is to detect the Brain signals for the motor actions and then to utilize these signals to drive a wheel chair.
Following are the Basic motor actions, that we are considering
1.Both left and right hand movements
2.Both left and right leg movements

i need your help in feature extraction method and classification method.
we are getting eeg signals from brain using modular eeg unit then i am classifing them using csp algorythm and classifiers like linear kernal ,svm and nearest neighbour .kindly guide me about the best method for feature extraction and classification i.e having good accuracy. so that i can classify the motor actions

actually now a days i m using bci data sets and verifying results of different research papers. reason that i am using bci data set is that i dont have hardware to get online data. i am also working on making my own hardware
can you guide me about some research papers with good accuracy so that i can implement them using bci data sets

Any kind of help regarding this would be highly appreciated.Waiting anxiously for prompt response

Sir!

Thank you for your valuable comments i will send you all contents in the reports.2mrw they will shift that child to general ward, his body is paralysed and now he cant talk even, just looks at ppl and can recognise them,but this has happened after a week & he has stoped crying too.

Dear Sir!
I have witnessed a case of child aged 10 year who is suffering from stroke and the Dr. in Aga khan Hospital have investigated but yet not come to conclusion yet. MIR,CT scan and echo test are done but the cause is yet unknown, child's condition is worsening they say apparent reason for this might be any clot in the brain, this child suffers from recurrent painful episodes and screams and is afraid as if some one is coming to kill him, and he has lost feeling of hunger too......may i get your valuable comments regarding this child.

Thanks for my inclusion in your mailing list. Your work sounds interesting and I hope we can have some scientific collaboration too. My e-mail id is naheedbanu7@yahoo.com. For I'm a biochemist and know nothing about MRI interpretations but for my brain studies I do need it.

Assalamo Alaikum Nasir! and Thank you!

I worke on non invasive BCI data(EEG). My thesis is focused on motor imagery tasks (alpha, mu and beta rhythms), I work on ECoG data too. My interest is pattern recognition and biosignal processing.
