Abstract

In the BCI (brain-computer interface) research, individuals can be trained to control the EEG spectral distribution in order to better control the BCI system. This paper presents our preliminary results of investigating the ERD (event-related desynchronization) phenomena of subjects practicing Zen meditation. In sum, the mind-attentiveness focus during the beginning stage of Zen meditation enables the meditators to proficiently control their EEG for better BCI manipulation. We thus suggest that Zen meditation might be a more feasible training scheme for the BCI study.
