Reading the motor intention from brain activity within 100ms

7

Researchers have developed a new technique to decode motor intention of humans from electroencephalography. This technique is motivated by the well documented ability of the brain to predict sensory outcomes of self-generated and imagined actions utilizing so called forward models. The method enabled, for the first time, nearly 90 percent single trial decoding accuracy across tested subjects, within 96 ms of the stimulation, with zero user training, and with no additional cognitive load on the users.
