Abstract

This paper describes the control system of a nextgeneration optical brain-computer interface (BCI). Using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) as a BCI modality is a relatively new concept, and research has only begun to explore approaches for its implementation. It is necessary to have a system by which it is possible to investigate the signal processing and classification techniques available in the BCI community. Most importantly, these techniques must be easily testable in real-time applications. The system we describe was built using LABVIEW, a graphical programming language designed for interaction with National Instruments hardware. This platform allows complete configurability from hardware control and regulation, testing and filtering in a graphical interface environment.
