We extend previous muscle-computer interface research by presenting techniques for cross-session finger gesture classification using our wireless muscle-sensing armband.

A Novel Brain-Computer Interface Using a Multi-Touch Surface
Beste F. Yuksel, University College London, UK
Michael Donnerer, University College London, UK
James Tompkin, University College London, UK
Anthony Steed, University College London, UK

Describes a brain-computer interface that allows users to select real objects placed on a multi-touch table solely using their thoughts. Highlights potential for BCIs to be integrated into novel uses.

The Influence of Implicit and Explicit Biofeedback in First-Person Shooter Games
