Essential Description (Caption):

Motor imagery (MI) results in either event-related desynchronization or synchronization (ERD or ERS). An EEG based BCI system distinguishes actual movements from MI and can be used to train the voluntary modulation of these rhythms.

Detailed Description (Description):

An orange arrow goes from a brain to an EEG system. The EEG system leads to a BCI system, which has 3 parts. The BCI system leads to an FES Application, then neurofeedback, which leads bac kito the brain in a clockwise cycle. THe ECG System aquires the signal, while the BCI System extracts features, classifies features and iutputs commands.
