    Our previous study was aimed at the classification of right index finger movement direction by means of the movement-related EEG signal. The EEG database we used was originally recorded for a physiological research; from our point of view it has one significant drawback: there is no continuous non-movement related (resting) EEG of sufficient length (>10 sec) in the database. To overcome this li... View full abstract»
