Christoph Guger is the founder and CEO of g.tec medical engineering GmbH. He studied Biomedical Engineering at the Technical University of Graz, Austria and at the John Hopkins University in Baltimore, USA. During his studies, he concentrated on BCI systems and developed many of the early foundations for bio-signal acquisition and processing in realtime. G.tec produces and develops BCIs that help disabled people communicate or control their environments by their thoughts and regain motor functions after a stroke.
Brain-computer interfaces are realized with non-invasive and invasive technology in order to extract information of the brain in real-time. In the talk the most important principles including P300, motor imagery and steady-state visual evoked potentials will be shown. Recently the addition of non-invasive and invasive body and brain stimulation triggered important closed-loop BCI developments. In the talk the usage of BCIs for rehabilitation, brain assessment, functional mapping, neuromodulation and avatar control will be shown.

Common Spatial Pattern (CSP) is shown to be an effective algorithm for SensoriMotor Rhythm (SMR) detection in Brain Computer Interface (BCI). But it is proved that CSP algorithm is sensitive to the outlier and nonstationary. In this work, Quadratic Neural Network (QNN) is proposed for the spatial filter optimization. Sharing similar formulas, the idea for spatial filter design would be quite different between CSP and QNN. Compared with CSP, the simtanously optimization of spatial filter and classifiers in QNN make the result global optimum. Furthermore, the limitations of orthogonality in spatial filter design are removed in QNN, which makes QNN has the ability to map the EEG signal into a low-dimensional space. Both the results from simulation data and real EEG signals demonstarted that QNN is robust to outliers and non-stationary signals in SMR-based BCI.
