Decoding Covert Somatosensory Attention by a BCI System Calibrated With Tactile Sensation
Objective: We propose a novel calibration strategy to facilitate the decoding of covert somatosensory attention by exploring the oscillatory dynamics induced by tactile sensation. Methods: It was hypothesized that the similarity of the oscillatory pattern between stimulation sensation (SS, real... Read more

A Stimulus-Independent Hybrid BCI Based on Motor Imagery and Somatosensory Attentional Orientation
       Distinctive EEG signals from the motor and somatosensory cortex are generated during mental tasks of motor imagery (MI) and somatosensory attentional orientation (SAO). In this study, we hypothesize that a combination of these two signal modalities provides improvements in BCI... Read more
