Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We perceived that some Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) researchers belief in totally different origins of invasive and non-invasive electrical BCI signals. Based on available literature we argue however, that although invasive and non-invasive BCI signals are different, the underlying origin of electrical BCIs signals is the same.
