I'm a fifth year student in Computer Engineering in Politecnico di Milano.<br />
I got my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in July 2007.<br />
I'm currently working on my final project in order to get my graduate degree.<br />
<br />
My final project is about brain-computer interfaces, in particular non-invasive sensorimotor rhythm-based BCI. <br />
The touchstone of the project is the [http://www.bciresearch.org/ Wardsworth BCI] interface developed by Wolpaw and his <br />
<br />
colleagues.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
==Description of the final project==<br />
As now, the current aim of the final project is to implement a working sensorimotor rhythm-based brain-computer interface and <br />
<br />
use it to control a cursor on a screen. To achieve this goal, I am working with my colleagues and my supervisor inside the <br />
<br />
university lab; our brain-computer interface is based on the free open-source framework <br />
<br />
[http://www.bci2000.org/BCI2000/Home.html BCI2000].<br />

== Bibliography of the final project ==<br />
<br />
'''Disclaimer''': as you can see, this is just a raw draft of the bibliography; I use it only to keep track of the papers I <br />
<br />
read, so each entry does not contain all the data related to the source, but only the name of an author (usually the most <br />
<br />
famous from each research group, e.g. J.R. Wolpaw for the Wadsworth Center or G. Pfurtscheller for the University of Graz), <br />
<br />
the title of the paper and the year of publication.<br />

<br />
I'm a fifth year student in Computer Engineering in Politecnico di Milano.<br />
I got my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in July 2007.<br />
I'm currently working on my final project in order to get my graduate degree.<br />
<br />
My final project is about brain-computer interfaces, in particular non-invasive sensorimotor rhythm-based BCI. <br />
The touchstone of the project is the [http://www.bciresearch.org/ Wardsworth BCI] interface developed by Wolpaw and his colleagues.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
==Description of the final project==<br />
As now, the current aim of the final project is to implement a working sensorimotor rhythm-based brain-computer interface and use it to control a cursor on a screen. To achieve this goal, I am working with my colleagues and my supervisor inside the university lab; our brain-computer interface is based on the free open-source framework [http://www.bci2000.org/BCI2000/Home.html BCI2000].<br />

The touchstone of the project is the [http://www.bciresearch.org/ Wardsworth BCI] interface developed by Wolpaw and his colleagues.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
==Description of the final project==<br />
As now, the current aim of the final project is to implement a working sensorimotor rhythm-based brain-computer interface and use it to control a cursor on a screen. To achieve this goal, I am working with my colleagues and my supervisor inside the university lab; our brain-computer interface is based on the free open-source framework [http://www.bci2000.org/BCI2000/Home.html BCI2000].<br />

I'm a fifth year student in Computer Engineering in Politecnico di Milano.<br />
I got my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in July 2007.<br />
I'm currently working on my final project in order to get my graduate degree.<br />
<br />
My final project is about brain-computer interfaces, in particular non-invasive sensorimotor rhythm-based BCI. <br />
The touchstone of the project is the [http://www.bciresearch.org/ Wardsworth BCI] interface developed by Wolpaw and his colleagues.<br />

I'm a fifth year student in Computer Engineering in Politecnico di Milano.<br />
I got my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in July 2007.<br />
I'm currently working on my final project in order to get my graduate degree.<br />
<br />
My final project is about brain-computer interfaces, in particular non-invasive sensorimotor rhythm-based BCI. <br />
The touchstone of the project is the [http://www.bciresearch.org/ Wardsworth BCI] interface developed by Wolpaw and his colleagues.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
==Description of the final project==<br />
As now, the current aim of the final project is to implement a working sensorimotor rhythm-based brain-computer interface and use it to control a cursor on a screen. To achieve this goal, I am working with my colleagues and my supervisor inside the university lab; our brain-computer interface is based on the free open-source framework [http://www.bci2000.org/BCI2000/Home.html BCI2000].<br />

=== Laboratory work and risk analysis ===<br />
<br />
Laboratory work for this project will be mainly performed at AIRLab-IIT/Lambrate. The main activity consists in the acquisition of brain signals through an EEG amplifier for on-line or off-line processing. This is a potentially risky activity since there is an electrical instrumentation that is in direct contact with the human body. It is thus important to keep the system isolated from the power line. The EEG amplifier (as all biomedical instrumentations) is certified by the vendor to be isolated and the acquired data are transferred to the PC using an optic fiber connection . Anyhow for increased safety the PC and any other electronic device connected to the system must be disconnected from the power line.<br />
Standard safety measures described in [http://airlab.elet.polimi.it/index.php/airlab/content/download/461/4110/file/documento_valutazione_rischi_AIRLab.pdf Safety norms] will be followed.<br />
<br />
== '''Part 2: Project description''' ==<br />
<br />
A Brain Computer Interface (BCI), also called Brain Machine Interface (BMI), is an advanced communication pathway that can allow an individual to control an external device, such as a wheelchair or a cursor on a computer, using signals measured from the brain (e.g., electroencephalography EEG). Research in this direction results of particular interest when addressed to totally paralyzed people. Using the mu and beta rhythms people has learnt to control their brain activity and thus to control external devices, such as a wheelchair, a cursor on a screen etc. We want to develop a system able to allow users to control the movement of an external device, controlling his/her mu or beta rhythms. <br />

<br />
I'm a fifth year student in Computer Engineering in Politecnico di Milano.<br />
I got my undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Milano in July 2007.<br />
I'm currently working on my final project in order to get my graduate degree.<br />
<br />
My final project is about brain-computer interfaces, in particular non-invasive sensorimotor rhythm-based BCI. <br />
The touchstone of the project is the [http://www.bciresearch.org/ Wardsworth BCI] interface developed by Wolpaw and his colleagues.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
==Description of the final project==<br />
As now, the current aim of the final project is to implement a working sensorimotor rhythm-based brain-computer interface and use it to control a cursor on a screen. To achieve this goal, I am working with my colleagues and my supervisor inside the university lab; our brain-computer interface is based on the free open-source framework [http://www.bci2000.org/BCI2000/Home.html BCI2000].<br />

'''Disclaimer''': as you can see, this is just a raw draft of the bibliography; I use it only to keep track of the papers I read, so each entry does not contain all the data related to the source, but only the name of an author (usually the most famous from each research group, e.g. J.R. Wolpaw for the Wadsworth Center or G. Pfurtscheller for the University of Graz), the title of the paper and the year of publication.<br />
